Central High School wishes boys basketball team well as they head for state

Our area celebrated another basketball team as they head to state!

La Crosse’s Central High School hosted a send-off for its boys team Thursday morning.

Students gathered for a pep rally to wish the team well. While the trip to Madison’s Kohl Center may be exciting for many, the team says their sights are set on one goal.

“My sophomore year we won and the feeling is indescribable, and obviously losing is obviously not what we want to do. // It’s a really fun experience and I just don’t want to go there just to go down there. I want to win,” said Central high School Senior Point Guard Noah Parcher.

Central takes on the Washington Purgolders from Milwaukee Friday afternoon.
