Tonight on WCMP we continued our march through March with another girls sectional championship game. Tonight’s game featured the Cambridge Isanti Bluejackets taking on the Duluth East Greyhounds for the Class AAAA Section 7 Championship. The Greyhounds were victorious, 68-51.

The Bluejackets are the number two seed in the conference. They boast a 20-9 record on the season.  They started the playoffs off with a 70-64 win over St. Francis. Then in the semi-finals they defeated Forest Lake 71-65. This will be the fourth consecutive year that the Bluejackets will play for the section championship. They lost the previous years to Anoka, St. Francis, and Blaine.

Duluth East is the number one seed in the section with their 22-5 record. They had a first round bye in the playoffs. In their only section playoff game they defeated Andover 59-48.
