GT Hills Lady Warriors crowed IESA 3A State Champs

The Germantown Hills eighth grade Lady Warriors basketball team was crowned IESA 3A State Champions on December 19 on their own court.  They beat Washington Middle to win Regionals, and Fieldcrest to win Sectionals. At the State Tournament, they went 3-0 to take the State title, beating Robinson-Nuttall, Peotone and Pleasant Plains.  The Warriors won with amazing teamwork and a stifling defense, which broke a State record by only allowing 50 points in the three State games.
