David La Vaque has covered all but one state hockey tournament game since 2009 and has worked as a Star Tribune high school sports reporter since 2004. His favorite tournament experiences include cheering for alma mater St. Paul Johnson in 1991 and staying for most of the Apple Valley/Duluth East marathon semifinal game in 1996. Loren Nelson has covered every state tournament since 2009 as the national media editor for Sport Ngin. He attended many, many other Tourney games as a high schooler from the far northern reaches of Minnesota making the annual pilgrimage south to the old St. Paul Civic Center in the 1980s.
We again asked Hub photographers Mark Hvidsten, Korey McDermott and Cheryl Myers to send us their best Tourney pics, this time from Saturday's Class 1A and 2A championship games. Again, they didn't disappoint.
Check out the highlights of their awesome work in the galleries below:
