An entire school celebrated their classmates Monday morning after they brought home the highest athletic honor in the state.

All eyes were on a trophy at Bradley Central and the Bearettes that brought it home. Bradley Central is the winningest program in Tennessee. But it had been 43 years since the girls last won it all.

Monday morning in Jim Smiddy Arena, the school showed its love. The gold ball trophy was prominently displayed and a video replay of senior Hannah Lombard’s game winner against Houston in the state championship game was played.
