Mar. 18—The Willmar girls hockey team is seeking its second consecutive state appearance. The Cardinals' postseason journey begins with a Section 6A semifinal matchup against Northern Lakes at 7 p.m. Thursday from the Willmar Civic Center.
If the Cardinals do advance, Bailey Olson will likely be a reason why that happens. The senior forward is the school's all-time leader in every offensive category and leads the team in points this season.
Prior to the semifinal, she joined West Central Tribune sports reporter Patrick Bernadeau for an interview as the two talked about Star Wars, cranberry juice, and her time with the Willmar girls hockey program.
