MAYVILLE – It had been 18 years since Mayville Post 8 found itself in the Class B State Legion Tournament.

“I honestly didn’t know it was 2001,” Mayville head coach Taylor Kunkel said Monday.

“Just the moment, in general, was special from the fact that we had to really battle that whole tournament.”
