The Silver Wolves are not quite done yet.
The Fremont girls basketball team was invited to participate in the DICK's Sporting Goods High School National Tournament, becoming the first Utah team to take part in the four-team, three-day, single elimination event in New York City this spring.
Head coach Lisa Dalebout and her team earned the invitation after finishing the season with a 24-2 record, a piece of the Region 1 championship, and the school's first ever girls basketball championship with a 60-27 win over American Fork in the 5A title game.
The tournament, which is in its sixth year and has previously been known as the National High School Invitational, is moving to New York City for the first time after being held in Maryland up until this point. It involves 12 teams total, including four girls and eight boys teams from across the country.
The tournament begins April 3 and the Silver Wolves' first game is April 4 at 12:30 p.m. against Miami Senior. It will be televised on ESPNU. If Fremont wins, it will play in the girls championship on April 5 at Madison Square Garden. That game will be shown on ESPN2.
