The kids on the bus were pumped and couldn't wait to get there. They brought along war-paint and huge posters and cutout faces of some of the players to hold up during the game.

Elliott Lara even sported his T-shirt that reads "Property of Eve" on the front and then has her jersey number on the back "10." He says he has worn it to every game this season to support Eve Heffron, a senior on the team.

The pep band was outside the Lakeland Center warming up, as the pep bus arrived loaded with fans 9 hours after departure from Santa Rosa Beach.

Then it was time to paint up and get ready for war against the Chipley Tigers.



The Lady Seahawks took the floor and fell behind early to the Tigers, but kept them within reach trailing 12-7 at the end of the first quarter.
