RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - A dreary, rainy day wasn't enough to put a damper on the spirits of faculty and students at Madison Central High School, still celebrating a big victory for the boys basketball team yesterday at Rupp Arena.
It's every teams goal, at the end of the season to be riding home with that coveted trophy that belongs to the best squad in the state.
Yesterday, hundreds greeted the Madison Central Indians basketball team as they made their way into town, crowned the new champions of the Bluegrass.
"Ever since we were freshman, we've had the town talk about, this is a special group of guys. They have a chance to win the eleventh region. We weren't even talking about winning the state championship," said Zach Jarvis, a senior on the championship team. He continued, "And then sophomore year we got Ken-jah Bosley from Indiana, and then we were good."
Good enough to take home the title. And basketball fever has yet to pass from the halls of Madison Central.
"Just watching them fight. I think that's one thing that made them special, was that no matter what happened they didn't give up. And they worked hard through it all just like they always have," said senior Ben Fisher, who watched the game at Rupp Sunday.
The Lady Indians take on the Pandas of Notre Dame Academy eight o' clock Thursday night in Bowling Green.
