Roseau joined rare company by becoming just the third undefeated champion in Class AA in the four-class era following its 75-64 victory over Sauk Centre in the title game at Williams Arena. 

Senior guard Kiley Borowicz powered the Rams (32-0) to their first championship in program history with 20 points, and younger sister, Kacie, a sophomore guard, added 19 in Roseau’s first appearance in a title game.

Since the four-class era began in 1997, only Caledonia (2009) and New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva (2014) have had undefeated championship seasons in Class AA. Roseau is the third No. 1 seed to win a state championship in the four years of seeding the tournament.

Kiley Borowicz, who earlier this season surpassed 3,000 points for her career, moved into fourth place all-time on the career scoring list in state tournament history. With her 20 points in the championship game, she finished her prep career with 268 points during state tournament play.

Ahead of her are Carlie Wagner of NRHEG (371 points), Janet Karvonen of New York Mills (329) and Braham’s Rebekah Dahlman (276). When Borowicz came out of the game for the final time in her prep career with 32.5 seconds left in regulation time, the fans on each side of Williams Arena gave her a rousing standing ovation. 

It was the third runner-up finish for Sauk Centre (31-2). The Mainstreeters were also second in the Class AA field in 2012 and 2015. 

Senior guard Jill Klaphake led four teammates in double figures with 19 points. Freshman guard Tori Peschel and junior guard Maesyn Thiesen had 15 points each and junior guard Kelsey Peschel contributed 11.
