BIC fans head to "The Rock"

March 10, 2005 -- Posted at 6:33 p.m. CST

Monette, AR -- The towns of Leachville and Monette are all abuzz with excitement. The boys of Buffalo Island Central High School are heading to the state championship finals for Class AA.

The road to the finals has been long. The boys were expected to at least make it to the state tournament last year but, they lost in regionals.

BIC fans are hoping this year will be different.

" I think all of the loses are the reason why we're doing so well this year, it builds character," said Dr. Kima Stewart, with the BIC school district.

The team will take on Bigelow Thursday afternoon in Little Rock for the state title.
