SUN PRAIRIE - The Monroe Cheesemakers' boys basketball fortunes were written some time ago, apparently, and stuffed into a cookie."I opened up a fortune cookie on March 1st at the World Buffet, and it said, 'No obstacles will come in the way of your success this month'," Monroe coach Pat Murphy said.In the end, no obstacle stood in the way of Monroe reaching a third straight state tournament - something no other Cheesemaker hoops team has done. It earned this trip with a hard-fought 44-42 win over Badger South rival and co-champion Madison Edgewood in Saturday's Division 2 sectional final in Waunakee.
