The 4-seed South St. Paul girls hockey team opens Class “A” state tournament play Wednesday night at the “X” vs. 5-seed Fergus Falls. The Packers come in having won 10 of their last 11 games, while allowing just 11 goals in that timeframe.

KSTP Sports attended South St. Paul’s practice on Tuesday and spoke with star senior goalie Delaney Norman and long-time head coach Dave Palmquist.
