Hill-Murray is the 2023 State Consolation Champion
Historical notes: this was the school's first consolation title in 45 years. The consolation semi 3OT win was the second longest game in school history by elapsed time, 78:09. Hill-Murray added to its all-time state tournament record total by playing in the 20th and 21st overtime times in program history. The 2023 Pioneers also tied a school record by playing in seven overtime games in one season (also done in 2020), but fell one short of the 2022 team's record four overtime victories.
