School briefs - Henrico High School

The Henrico Warriors basketball team is amazing. On March 8, more than 7,000 people filled the Siegel Center to watch the Warriors win the state championship.

Starting March 4, the day of the semifinal game, the spirit at Henrico High School was through the roof. Even the trees around campus were decked out in green and gold streamers. The students were given early dismissal in order to go watch and cheer at the semi-finals game. And cheer they did. Students and teachers alike were proudly wearing their green and gold. We also had crazy wigs, war paint, a banana costume and a Principal Ronald Rodriguez fathead. After the Warriors beat Woodson 75-65, the Warriors were ready to take it all the way to state.

All week long, the students of Henrico were excited. It was spirit day every day. There was even a door decorating contest. The teacher with the most spirited door would win tickets to the game. Between window paint, butcher paper, and even some Christmas lights, the school truly became Warrior Nation.

The state game against John Marshall High School sold out the Siegel Center. This was the biggest event in my attendance of Henrico High. The game even was televised. The second the players hit the court, the cheers were deafening. The crowd was waving its arms and jumping up and down, and that energy never ceased. The game ended with a 72-48 win for Henrico High School. Way to go, Warriors!
