Welcome home celebration for Southeast Boys Basketball Players
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
It was a day of celebration as the student, friends, and families welcomed home the Southeast High School Boys Basketball team who competed in the 3A State Championship game on Saturday.
The basketball players finished 2nd place in the state.
Large crowds filled the streets and school gym with firefighters, teacher, students and even the Springfield mayor.
Senior Basketball Player Kobe Medley said he feels great about the game even though it was the final game of his high school career.
"It feels amazing knowing that in my senior year I got to play all the way to the very end, to the very last game with a group of guys that I love,” Medley said.
Kobe Medley is the only graduating senior from the team.
