Welcome Home, Champions: Pickford Returns To Celebration
PICKFORD – After winning their first state title, just a year after coming up just short in the finals, this win meant so much to the community of Pickford.
They defeated Portland St. Patrick in the Division 2 8-Player State Championship, 48-15 at the Superior Dome in Marquette.
After the win, they hopped on the bus to return home and they were greeted with all of their support, including several fire and police departments giving them an escort into town.
“I’ve watched this senior class since they were fourth graders,” said Pickford parent, Susan Edington. “To watch them get to the point where they got to, to watch their dreams that they set as elementary kiddos come true, it’s been just absolutely amazing.”
