ROSEMOUNT, Minn. — Leaving a legacy at Lakeville North isn't easy. 

Lauren Jensen and the Panthers are advancing to state for a 5th straight year as they topped Rosemount in the sectional finals.  

The Iowa commit surpassed Rachel Banham’s school record for three pointers this season. That's not a bad accomplishment considering Banham went on to star for the Gophers and recently was traded to the Lynx. 

Jensen isn’t done following her lead.

Lakeville North is fighting to win their first state title since 2010 when Banham was still played for the Panthers.
