The Marion community sent off its high school Warrior girls’ basketball team to the Class 3A state championship game Saturday in Hutchinson with a motorcade escort down Main Street. It was the first time an MHS girls’ team was playing for a state basketball title, and its first trip to state since 1992.
Senior Kayley Heerey eyes a free-throw attempt after being fouled on a 3-point shot in the title game. The Warriors, seeded sixth in the tournament, played gallantly against No. 1-seeded Thomas More Prep, but came up on the short end of a 56-45 score.
