The Rosemount girls hockey team made their first appearance at the State Tournament in 2011. It took them twelve years and surviving a double-overtime Section Final thriller to get back.

Sophomore Sophie Stramel’s goal 38 seconds into the second overtime against Cretin-Derham Hall in the Section 3AA Championship game sent the Irish to State.
