To celebrate - the team's classmates pulled-out all the stops today to cheer-on the lady tornados of Poland High School in Herkimer County.

The school was full of enthusiasm and anticipation, as the Poland Tornadoes look to follow-up their victory last season with another state title this year.

The excitement and energy at Poland High School is through the roof.

The team's coach is just as excited as the members of the Tornados team.

"To say that I'm proud would not do a justice. I'm thrilled. They're excited. They've earned it," says Head Coach Tom Basel.


As a play on the team's name - the send-off started with a mock tornado warning to wish the Poland Tornadoes well before they head to the big game against Eldred Saturday.


They were then cheered on by the entire student body and drum-line as they were leaving for the big matchup.

"Well we've definitely been working at it for a long time we've been playing summer leagues since last June so we've been working up to this point all year and this was our goal all season so it's definitely exciting," says team member Paige Sullivan.

"It's very satisfying, we think we have a big target on our back all season long, teams want to knock us off and we've played tougher competition to make us ready for this run and it's worked out well," Basel said.


The school's sendoff is special for all members of the Lady Tornadoes, as they go for their second straight state championship.


"This is one of the greatest parts because the whole school prepares for this and it's just great to walk through," says Sullivan.
