Prairie's Asplund has right frame of mind
Kelsey Asplund knows she struggled in this state tournament. It happens.
Especially to athletes who are playing out of position. She will be a guard in college, but the vertically challenged Falcons needed her to be a post. That can be difficult, giving up height and weight against the best posts in the state. So yeah, her numbers were not great at state.
(Even if her shooting was off, she still managed five rebounds a game.)
But here are the numbers that really matter to her: 3-0 in the state tournament and 27-1 overall, with a 27-game winning streak.
“It just feels so good to finally have what we’ve been working for,” Asplund said, referring to the four years of practice, of making it to the dome, and now, claiming the ultimate prize.
