"This is my first," High said. He went on to say that what the girls have accomplished is phenomenal.

After hugging his girls, Craig said, "I've been here seven times (to the Final Four), I don't want to take away from any one of my teams, but this is very sweet."

Craig turned and thanked the pep band and before he left the Lakeland Center he stepped onto the fan bus to thank the students for making the journey.

South Walton High Assistant Principal Jonathan D'Avignon and administrator Jimmy Ross also came aboard the bus and thanked the students.

"Do you realize what you did?" D'Avignon asked. "I appreciate this ... it's all you guys. Let's make this the norm."

One of the students on the bus summed it all up — "This was the best field trip ever."
