Fans Push Teams To NSIC Victories

Fans Push Teams To NSIC Victories

With the NSIC tournament underway at the Sanford Pentagon, fans are coming in from all over the region to cheer on their teams.

The crowds inside the Sanford Pentagon were on the edge of their seats Monday as the Northern State University women faced MSU Mankato for a spot in the NSIC championship game.

"It was so intense to be up by one and down by one. It's just a great feeling to play in front of a huge crowd and have every one cheering. It was just heart pounding," team member Rachel Krogman said.

Krogman says the enthusiastic fans are a key part to the team's success this year.

"I think it gets us really hyped up more, to know that people are cheering for us and wanting us to win so bad that it makes us better," Krogman said. 

"It's like anything. When you have that support and those cheerleaders there, it gets you fired up. It makes you want to win for the fans. So they appreciate that," mom and fan, Julie Kusler, said. 

Kusler's daughter, Alison, is a senior on the team. She says the bigger crowds have been a great asset to the women's victories this season.

"They've grown and created relationships with some of these people from Aberdeen. So it really is like family. So it really is more important if your family and those that are there to support you are there in person," Kusler said. 

And the women are hoping going into Tuesday's big game, their fans will be out in full force cheering them on.

"I expect a lot of people to be here and to be up and out of their seats and cheering so loud that their voices won't be there on Wednesday," Krogman said.

We'll have more on the NSIC tournament on KELOLAND News at 6 and 10.
