He also shared his hope of how this win will be an inspiration for the future success of other EHS teams.

“We’re the first team to [win a championship] here, and that means anyone can do it,” said Coach Molander. “I am super happy to see other programs winning and building and supporting each other.” 

Middle-linebacker and senior Kaden Armstrong sees the win as an expectation for all sports and programs at Eastmark High.

“We are the first team to go all the way to not only be in the state championship but to also win it,” says Armstrong.
