PERRY COUNTY - Hard work and determination led Perry County Storm basketball members to gold as they won the Special Olympics Indiana State Finals.
The team took on the Clark County Warriors March 30 after defeating the Kosciusko County Panthers 59-34 the previous day at Indiana State University in Terre Haute.
Storm members outscored the Warriors 70-29.
"We were surprised at how all the team members stepped up in the final game and played their hearts out," said Vicky Lutgring, Special Olympics Perry County coordinator.
The team's journey began in January when they won two games to qualify for the March 15 Area 10 Super Sectionals. From there, they defeated the Knox County Suns at Boonville Junior High School to move to the state tourney.
