This is the first year for the Tolsia Rebels to make it to the state level. This is the 3rd trip, out of 7 years, for Wayne to make the trip to Wheeling.
On Wednesday night, both teams got the community into the team spirit. Wayne held a community pep rally in front of the Wayne county courthouse. Meanwhile in Glen Hayes, at Tolsia high school, the school held a dinner for the players and the community.
The Rebels and Pioneers leave Thursday morning for Wheeling. They will battle it out Friday night at 7:30pm.
