Community rallies behind state championship-bound Twin Lakes basketball

Twin Lakes boys head basketball coach Kent Adams thanks community for its support.

MONTICELLO, Ind. (WLFI) — One day before the Twin Lakes High School boys basketball team plays for the Class 3A State Championship, students filled the gym to wish the players good luck.

Cheerleaders led the crowd in chants, before the team thanked fans for their support. This is the first time in school history Twin Lakes has made it to the state finals.

Senior point guard Justin Crabb says the community is excited to bring home the trophy.

“It just gave me chills today listening to everybody in the gym. We’ve never had a pep rally with all the schools. For the administration to put that together for us is very special feeling for all of us,” Crabb said.

Twenty-one-year head coach Kent Adams says the team is approaching the final game like any other, but he admits it’s very exciting.

“You just can’t do what we’re doing without all of the hoopla, and all of the excitement and enthusiasm from our students and community,” Adams said.

Twin Lakes takes on Cripus Attucks High School at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis Saturday. Tip-off is at 6 p.m.
