MANCHESTER - Gilford High School and Laconia High School tip-off tomorrow for the NHIAA division 3 girls basketball state championships.
"This is a culmination of four years of work, hard work for the kids," Gilford's head coach, Richard Forge said. "So this is great, it's a great event not only for the school but also the community."
The Sachems and Golden Eagles have been in the same division for only four years, while tomorrow's game will be the last time they face off in a championship before a divisional shift.
"I mean we're only a three-point shot away from one another in terms of distance of the high school," Forge said.
This kind of season finale could not be more perfect especially for the seniors, and Laconia has eight on their squad.
The last time the two teams met, they went into triple overtime with the Golden Eagles winning by two.
"It was probably one of the best games of the last 20 years, and so we expect nothing less when it comes to Saturday," Laconia's head coach, Jeff Greeley said. "I was raised on Elm Street, went to Elm Street school, went to the junior and high school here. I can remember growing up, being passionate about the girls basketball team."
The game will be held at Southern New Hampshire University on Saturday starting at 4 p.m.
