Journal Gazette

Churubusco High School's boys basketball team received a shout-out Thursday on the floor of the U.S. House.

Rep. Jim Banks, R-3rd, congratulated the Eagles for their first-ever sectional championship on Saturday night, when they won the Class 2A Woodlan Sectional.

Calling the title "a historic accomplishment," Banks noted that Churubusco boys teams have been playing since 1918. He quoted Eagles senior Luke Foote as saying the title "means a lot to the guys that put on the jersey before us.”

"The celebration of this sectional title is truly a century in the making," Banks said.
