Rebels girls lacrosse won’t rest its laurels on back-to-back section titles and state appearances.

Not after a 21-6 loss to perennial Minnesota lax power Eden Prairie on Wednesday. The Eagles and Blake have more or less owned girls lax’s summit since the Minnesota State High School League tournaments began in 2007. Wednesday’s loss to the Eagles gives the Rebels a picture of how high they’ll need their program to climb to reach that point.

Champlin Park coach Brian Finnvik said it’s about, “getting more girls to play in the offseason and just keep growing as a program.”

Despite the quarterfinal loss, the Rebels can at least add a
consolation title to their program’s list of achievements. They will have a rematch with Armstrong on Thursday at 1 p.m. in Chaska. The winner play for the consolation title on Saturday.

During the regular season, the Falcons edged the Rebels 10-9 to secure the Northwest Suburban Conference title.
