Lady Indians Make History at State Finals

Lady Indians Make History at State Finals
Written by Clinton Randall of Bluebag media---INDIANAPOLIS – Despite a tough 68-43 loss at Saturday’s IHSAA state finals, the Union City Lady Indians basketball team made history just being there. Playing for a state championship was not only a first for the school in any sport, but was also the first time a girls basketball team made it that far from Randolph County.

SinceGirls Basketball team winning a double overtime thriller in last week’s Semi-State game, the Union City community has been buzzing with excitement in anticipation of their Lady Indians playing at the state finals.

As the team left for Indianapolis on Friday, they were cheered on by hundreds of fans from the school, the community and surrounding towns as the bus drove through Randolph County.

Though they were unable to capture a state title, they returned as champions nonetheless. Upon the team’s return, family and fans packed the high school gym one more time for a team homecoming celebration and to say “thank you” for a season the Union City community will never forget.

“These girls will not be remembered for being state runners-up, but will be remembered for what they have done for this community, this school, this county and this state,” Head Coach Sarah Black said during a welcome home celebration Saturday at Union City High School. “They have amazing character that will carry with them throughout the rest of their lives!”

“There are 96 other schools that don’t have a medal around their neck today,” Asst. Coach Keith Fields said to the team during the celebration. “I know it hurt a lot today and in the locker room, but you girls have changed the history of this school!”

“You have definitely made an impact on me and will always have a special place in my heart,” Asst. Coach Neal Adams told the ladies. “You are champions in many many ways and I appreciate you allowing me to come along for the ride!”
