Two days after capturing the first team state title for South Walton High, the Lady Seahawks once again were met by a roaring home crowd.

Friday’s victory rally in the gym for the basketball team was another reminder of how important the win was, not just for the school but for the still-young community.

“Having only been established 11 years ago … one thing that we don’t have is traditions and things like that, so to see the kids rally around this team is what this is all about,” Athletic Director Phil Tisa said. “It means more than just a state championship for this school.”

As for the girls who claimed the Florida 1A title, a little time and distance didn’t make Wednesday’s 58-49 win over Chipley in Lakeland any less remarkable.
