Madison (WQOW) -- Madison is where every boys basketball team in Wisconsin wants its season to end. Elmwood capped off the season at the Kohl Center, finishing a game short of a shot at the state title.
The Raiders fell to Randolph 46-37 in a state semifinal game. Elmwood actually led by four at the half, but a strong half from the Rockets -- coupled with some cold shooting by the Raiders -- resulted in the nine point loss. Still, only four teams from each division get to the opportunity to play in the state tournament. Elmwood says its an experience they will never forget.
"Out of 10, it was a 12. It was really neat. It's unbelievable and I will never forget it. It was a lot of fun and I'm sure everyone else enjoyed it. I've been getting nothing but 'we're proud of you and we're so happy for you, and just enjoy'. And that's what we have been doing," says senior guard Eli Frederickson.
"This is the ultimate goal, and I think it's going to get some excitement, definitely some excitement in the town and community," says head coach Chris Segerstrom. "And I really think it's going to catapult some things in Elmwood."
