FAIRBANKS-One of two MAC teams are going to the state tournament and one is Hutchison. The Hutchison Hawks are young but experienced when it comes to the state tournament. This is their second state berth in the team's three year existence.
How did they get here? Hutchison finished second in the MAC with 7-5 record but gave North Pole their only conference loss this season. That win gave Hutch the confidence that they can compete and win against tough teams.
