"I don't know because we still have Madden 22 coins to grow. I would like to see us become an elite team capable of accomplishing this. I don't think we're far enough," Bales said of the team's chances of winning being able to win a sectional championship. "We've to work on learning be better at defending ... try not to get into the trap of making mistakes that don't have to be forced. This means we have some work to do. And certainly (a part-time title) is where we hope to finish."
While four consecutive titles in the sectional championship would break the school's record, the Vikings still have some way to go towards becoming a clear postseason potential contender.

The Vikings will, in the end, take them as far as Madden goes. Madden entered the season scoring 1,000 points and averaging an average of 16 points in the past two seasons and will probably soon be over 1,000 career rebounds.
Madden is the primary player in Blue River's return to prominence in the postseason and Blue River's win on Tuesday night's victory of 77-63 against Wapahani (4-2) demonstrated her importance. She scored 27 points. 12 of which came in the 4th quarter that ended the Raiders' comeback efforts, and was dominant in the paint throughout the game long on both ends.
Madden is being asked to perform more this season. Her role of primarily an inside player has been expanded since she's now allowed to occasionally, play out on the perimeter, as well as shoot more and make plays.
Blue River's guards don't have cheap madden coins as much experience than they were in past seasons and, therefore, in games where teams play a press defense like Wapahani did, the 6-foot-1 Madden assists in getting the ball up when the guard is in a position to be trapped.
