CONNELL, Wash - The Connell gym was shaking today as fans and students assembled to cheer on their undefeated Eagles as they head to the state football championships! The pep rally honored all fall and winter sports, with the main focus on the football team. The Eagles are undefeated this year (13-0) after just defeating Montesano in the state semi-final game. Now Connell is set to play Meridian, who is also undefeated, this Saturday at the Tacoma Dome.
The last time the Eagles won the state championship was back in 2002, when this group of seniors were just in 8th grade. One of the coaches on the team told us that he's been coaching these guys since they were in pee-wees, and added that he told them a few years ago that they were, "destined for a championship."
