New Richmond girls basketball knocks off state-ranked Chippewa Falls
It had become an annual ritual that the New Richmond girls basketball team would face Chippewa Falls and come out licking their wounds after a thumping from the perennial-power Cardinals.
So when the New Richmond girls knocked off the Division 1 state-ranked Chippewa Falls squad last Tuesday, 52-47, it was a highly satisfying win for the Tigers.
“That was a huge confidence booster,” said New Richmond coach Jeff Kanewischer. “They beat us by 35 last year, 30 the year before.”
