It was a great send off for the Madras Girls Basketball Team Thursday morning as they spent time with staff, students and community members at the Warm Springs K-8 Academy. They were greeted with signs and balloons and lots of good will. A police escort led them from the school, through Warm Springs to Highway 26 for their trip over Mt Hood.
