Two teams from 277 miles apart faced off on Saturday, each playing for the program's first state championship.

Many BOLD High school fans had to dig themselves out of snowdrifts caused by the high winds in western Minnesota. Meanwhile, folks from up north came down to cheer on Mountain Iron-Buhl, who had been to 12 of the last 13 state tournaments but never won a title.

"It's been a long time coming and the people, they're driving down in droves because they're behind these girls," said Mountain Iron-Buhl High School Athletic Director Luke Winans. 'We're ready to get that gym rocking for a welcome home party after. This is very exciting for the communities of Mountain Iron-Buhl."
