APPLETON (WLUK) -- Students at Appleton North are celebrating after its girls basketball team won the Division 1 State Championship this weekend.

The Lightning beat Mukwonago, 45-32 at the Resch Center in Green Bay Saturday.

It's the team's second state championship win in a row.

The school held a pep rally for the team's back-to-back win Tuesday.

"We had our ups and downs and I think a lot of people doubted us but like Darren said, we stuck with it, stuck through it, and I think this gold ball was sweeter than last year's," said Appleton North senior, Kari Brekke.

The team, along with the coach will join Good Day Wisconsin Wednesday with its gold ball trophy around 7:45 a.m.
