Lansing (WJRT) (4/20/17) The Flushing High School Lady Raiders were welcomed at the Michigan Senate and House Chambers. It was quite an honor for the championship team to get a proclamation from State Senator Ken Horn and applause from legislators.
The Raiders were crowned the champs of Class A in their first ever appearance at the state title game and Thursday they got a tour of the state Capitol.
"Senator Horn invited us over so we're very pleased for this tremendous opportunity to come over. We're really proud and grateful for the chance to be able to do it," said Horn.
The team entered the senate chamber and stood before the lawmakers as Senator Horn explained the great achievement that brought them there. A proclamation was presented that paid special tribute to the team.
"I can't think of a better way to ell the state of Michigan how proud we are of these girls than to bring them right here to the state capitol," Horn said.
The girls were impressed with the beauty of the capitol and the honor bestowed on them.
"I thought it was crazy. I can't believe we're here. I'm kind of grasping it," said Kamryn Chapelle.
"I don't think it ever sunk in that we won the championship so when they said that we're coming, I said come on now. But I'm really grateful that we're here," said Breana Perry.
Some parents were able to look on from the gallery as their daughters were honored.
