New Richmond's 1976 girls basketball team qualfied for initial WIAA state tournament
In the early years of WIAA girls sports programs, fans weren't sure what to make of the fledging teams that were sprouting up in each school.
In New Richmond, that changed in the winter of 1975-76. A hearty group of girls put together one of the finest stretches in Tiger girls basketball history. They won 16 straight games, qualifying for the first WIAA state championships.
