Senior led Cardinals to state semi-finals

When the prep boys hockey season began, Sam Dunn was good. By the time it ended, he had climbed the ladder up to great.

Dunn, a 5-foot-10, 190-pound senior, helped the Sun Prairie boys hockey team win four consecutive WIAA tournament games — two of them by single-goal margins — as the Cardinals reached the states semifinals before falling to the Waukesha North co-op, 5-4 in overtime.

Dunn’s late-season performance and season-long leadership helped him emerge to win the Wisconsin State Journal/WisconsinPrepZone.com All-Area Player of the Year honor.
