(WHAS11)- It was a major send off Thursday for the on Jeffersonville High School’s girls basketball team as they head to the state championship in Fort Wayne, Ind.
The team took center stage at a pep rally at Jeffersonville High School and then the police department escorted them through Downtown Jeffersonville.
If they were to win the big game Saturday night against Penn High School from Mishawaka, Ind., this would be their first state championship.
"We've got a great team who is very unselfish and they work extremely hard. They rebound the ball and they take care of one another to be at this point and feel like they can finish the job on Saturday night," said Coach Chad Gilbert.
The game is Saturday in Fort Wayne at 8 p.m.
A welcome home celebration is planned for Monday at 7 p.m. at Jeffersonville High School.
