Cause for celebration

Colfax Viking head coach Joe Doucette, middle, and players jump to their feet in celebration after sophomore Morgan Schleusner drained a free throw to set the Vikings ahead 49-47 against the Cameron Comets with 17 seconds remaining in the second half of Thursday's WIAA Division 4 Sectional Semifinal at New Richmond High School. The Vikings defeated the Comets 51-49 on a buzzer-beating 2-pointer by sophomore Kameri Meredith to move on to the sectional championship game against the No. 1 undefeated Melrose-Mindoro Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at River Falls.
