EAST TROY -- The Trojan boys’ tennis team made history by qualifying for the WIAA Division 2 state tennis tournament in Madison.

The team tournament will be held Friday and Saturday, June 9-10, 2017 at Nielsen Tennis Stadium on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. The individual championship was held June 1-3, 2017.

East Troy will have its hands full when it faces defending champion Edgewood in a semifinal at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 10. The winner advances to the championship at 2 p.m.

Edgewood returns to the state team tournament for the 14th straight year, which also accounts for the Crusaders' overall total of appearances.

Prior to winning the title last year, they finished runner-up seven times, including 2004, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2014 and 2015.

Both East Troy and The Prairie School advance to the state tournament for the first time.

Kohler returns to the final field of four for the first time since its only other appearance in 2016, which resulted in a loss in the semifinals.

Ticket prices are $6 per session.
