"Perseverance, teamwork, and determination — Squirt C Black used all of those to bring the Squirt 2C State Championship home. This team came together and gave it their all, with each and every player stepping up to play their best hockey of the season. Their first state tournament game with New Richmond went into sudden death overtime, with Janesville Black coming out on top 2–1. Then the team capped off the first day of the tournament with a 3–2 win over Fox Valley Red to make it to the championship game on Sunday. Down 2–0 in a gritty championship match-up with Fox Valley White, Janesville Black never quit and fought back to take their only lead of the game with 1:10 remaining in the third period, a lead they held under the guidance of head coaches Steve Hirn and Dan Swenson and assistant coach Bob Bastien. The team faced a lot of adversity this season, but the hard work put in by this group of 9- and 10-year-olds and the growth of each player made this championship an amazing cap to an outstanding year."
