Menomonie, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Trent Olson scored an overtime goal on Friday night to send the Superior boys' hockey team to a 2-1 win over Hudson in the sectional final, earning the Spartans a 35th overall trip to the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) state tournament.

The Spartans have qualified for state in 10 of the previous 11 seasons, with the program's last championship coming in the 2005-06 year.

Superior will take on Fond du Lac in the opening round of the WIAA state tournament, with that game set for 6:00 p.m. on Feb. 28 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wis.
