The Shakopee girls basketball team is trying to do what the boys have: make it to the state tournament. They're still alive after a miracle win over Chaska in the section semifinals.

Shakopee sophomore Taylor Koenen, who already has an offer from the Gophers and others, hit a nearly full-court shot to win the game last Saturday. The final: Shakopee 60, Chaska 59.

Shakopee takes on Bloomington Kennedy Friday night at 7 p.m. for the Section 2AAAA championship.
