Crestwood Girls Advance To State Tourney; Oelwein Denied Trip
Crestwood is the first team from Northeast Iowa to qualify for the Iowa High School Girls State Basketball Tournament. The 2nd-ranked Cadets earned their fourth trip to state in school history Saturday night (February 22, 2014), beating Mount Vernon (15-9) 56-50 in the regional championship game at Independence.
It's been 22 years since Oelwein last made it to state. Unfortunately for the Huskies, they'll have to wait longer. Third-ranked Clear Lake earned the state tournament bid with an 83-34 victory over Huskies (14-9) in the regional final played at Charles City. Oelwein's last state tournament appearance was 1993.
The entire Class-3A state tournament field is set now. Thirty-three other teams moved to within one victory of state by winning regional semifinal games Saturday night.
