Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate the Woodbury Royals' Girls Basketball team on their Class 4A Minnesota State High School Girl's Basketball championship. The Royals finished a perfect 29-0 with their 61-42 victory over the Eastview Lightning, in a game that showcased the number 1 and number 2 ranked teams in the State. This is the first State girls basketball title for the Royals in their 10th trip to the tournament. Coached by Dave Preller, the Royals capitalized on their scoring opportunities, sinking 25 of 29 free throws. Woodbury placed four players on the all tournament team: Sophomore Amanda Nisleit, junior Katie Tacheny and seniors Lacy Gram and Katie Kirley. Mr. Speaker, I congratulate the fine students and coaches from Woodbury High School on their championship season. I know the citizens of Woodbury and all of Minnesota are proud of their accomplishment.
