Maple Grove girls basketball’s seniors want nothing more than a breakthrough trip to the State Tournament to cap off their high school careers.

Led by future Minnesota Gopher Kennedy Klick, the Crimson’s six-player class of ’23 has them in position to earn the program’s first appearance at State since 2019 – when this year’s seniors were in eighth grade.

Roseville upset the Crimson in last year’s Section Final, and the two are on track for a potential rematch in this year’s Section Final.

With six games left in the regular season, Maple Grove is 18-3, currently riding a 13-game win streak.

Since opening the season with back to back losses to Hopkins and Wayzata – the #1 and #3 ranked teams in Class 4A respectively – the Crimson have won 18 of 19.
