After crushing the competition at Districts against Challis and Butte, the Lady Grizzlies departed to Boise last Wednesday to play for the State Champ title. Anticipation and excitement in the air, the student body sent off our girls before class and wished them well with confetti poppers and a firetruck escort.

Zoeigh Walker recalls, “The send off was way different than anything we’ve ever done before, but it definitely got us more pumped up for the intense weekend we had ahead of us.”

The crazy competitive week started off Thursday evening with the Lady Grizzlies being defeated by the Genesee Bulldogs with the score being 44-30. Things began to look up Friday afternoon when the Grizzlies defeated the Rimrock Raiders with the score being 64-30. Starting off their Saturday morning, the Lady Grizzlies played the Notus Pirates and won with the score being 64-29. Awarded with the 4th place trophy and an award for Best Sportsmanship, the Lady Grizzlies had a successful time at state.

Brooklyn Rigby exclaims, “I felt like we did really well this year at state! It was awesome that we placed fourth, and I’m so glad that we had the pep band and cheerleaders there to cheer us on and help us earn the Best Sportsmanship award.”

Along with the girl’s basketball team going to state, the pep band and cheerleaders had the opportunity to travel with them and support them at their games. The cheerleaders even had the chance to perform their competition routine during one of the halftimes.

Susanna Cooper expresses, ” I was super nervous because we had to perform in front of a ton of people we didn’t know. But I still had a lot of fun!”

Many memories were made during this fun trip to state and everyone is eager to see how our girls do next year. The girls had a successful weekend and proudly brought home two hard earned awards and our school and community couldn’t be prouder!
