WISCONSIN DELLS - The Cheesemakers have done it. Monroe's softball postseason outlook was dreary nearly three weeks ago during a three-game skid. However, coach Dale Buvid righted the ship and has his team in the final four for yet another season. "Who would have thought this three weeks ago?," Buvid said. "We were 10-9, on a three-game losing streak and weren't scoring any runs. But we kept believing that on our best day we could beat anyone. And we did. We got it done." At the WIAA Division 2 sectional tournament Thursday, Monroe (19-9) defeated Adams-Friendship (9-12) 8-3 in the semifinal, then topped Edgerton (20-4) 3-0 to punch the team's fourth trip to state in the past seven years.
