Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (WKOW) -- The Waunakee girls basketball team has done the improbable. The Warriors upset three straight teams to punch their ticket to the WIAA state tournament for the first time since 2001.

Despite a record under .500 heading into the postseason, Waunakee defeated DeForest, Madison Edgewood and then Waterford Union on Saturday.

The school and community have rallied around this Cinderella team. The school will release students Friday morning, and several buses will take fans to Green Bay.

Waunakee will face undefeated Milwaukee Pius XI in the state semifinals on Friday at 1:35 p.m. at the Resch Center.
