Woodbury girls basketball: Royals denied state bid
Woodbury's bid for a state tournament berth fell short Thursday against St. Paul Central, which imposed its will with a size advantage and a smothering defense.
The No. 2-seeded Royals fell 58-47 to the top-seeded Minutemen in the Section 4AAAA championship game at East Ridge High School.
The loss brings an end to a remarkable turnaround season for Woodbury, which compiled a 19-10 record after going 9-17 in 2011-12.
