Pep rally held for Oregon-Davis girls basketball team

Posted:

The Oregon-Davis girls' basketball team kicked things off for their state title game this weekend by holding a pep rally. Students from Oregon-Davis Elementary and High School were in attendance as well as faculty, staff and community members. The pep band started the celebration as different banners showcasing support for the team were brought into the gym. Students and teachers participated in games. That was followed by each player being introduced to the crowd.  

Principal of Oregon-Davis High School Tim Pletcher is in his first year as the principal at the school. He says that he has enjoyed the journey the team has been on. "There's a lot of stress in a lot of different ways, and this is one of those stresses. But it's a fun kind of stress," he said. "It's been a great couple of weeks. It's been a great run with the girls." 

The event ran a little more than 30 minutes. FOX 28's Dean Huppert was also in attendance for the rally. He offered some words of encouragement to the team and brought the already excited crowd to a new level. 

There will be a welcoming party waiting for the Ladycats team whether they win or lose in the state title game. The Oregon-Davis Ladycats will play Vincennes Rivet on Saturday, March 8 at 10:30am at the Hulman Center in Terre Haute.
