Rushford-Peterson sends boys basketball teams off to state

Rushford-Peterson boys basketball team returns to state

RUSHFORD, Minn. (WKBT) - State basketball tournaments may have wrapped up in Wisconsin, but March Madness continues across the border.

Rushford-Peterson sent their boys off to the Twin Cities with a pep rally Wednesday morning.

It's the school's first trip to state since 2015 when they won the state title.

While they are no strangers to state, they say the support from the community never gets old.

"I think the kids are excited in the community and just play off their energy a little bit. They all know that when we get up there that we're representing not only our school, but the whole area, so I think it's just a good way to get the kids fired up," said head coach Tom Vix.

Rush-Pete plays Thursday at 5 p.m. at the University of Minnesota against Cass Lake-Bena.
