Superior on the court: Wildcats aim for first basketball state title

SO. Kalynn Meyer taking shots before practice.

Superior volleyball left Lincoln in style, upsetting the top three seeds in C2, capturing their first state title in school history.

Now they return for a shot at their first basketball title with almost the exact same faces.

All but one of the Wildcats expected to take the court this weekend saw action in the Devaney Center, fueling the team with the same drive to win.

So far it seems to be working, with the team climbing their way to a 25-1 record, earning the No. 3 seed heading into the tournament.

"In the first day of basketball practice we we're setting goals," head coach Jim Sullivan said. "They said, we want to get back to Lincoln and we want another shot at a state championship," Sullivan continued. "It's been on their minds since November and they want to get there for basketball to bring another title to Superior."

"We have a lot more confidence in ourselves after we won it," sophomore Kalynn Meyer said. I think going into the school season we knew we were going to be good in basketball, but It just came to a surprise to us in volleyball," Meyer added. "So we just have more confidence in ourselves to good in basketball and volleyball in the upcoming years."

Becoming one of the most Superior Wildcats of them all, sophomore Kalynn Meyer heads into the state tourney 46 points shy of surpassing 1,000 career points.

Superior gets a district final rematch with Archbishop Bergan in the first round Thursday at Lincoln North Star. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.
