Valley Pirates Championship Celebration

SANDERS, Ariz. — The Valley of the Pirates was flooded with blue and gold spirit March 11 as local fans lined the highway to congratulate the Arizona 2A Girls State Basketball Champions.

The team was carried through town in a parade held in their honor. Arizona Department of Transportation, Apache County Sheriff’s Department, Puerco Valley Fire District, Sanders Unified School District, and the Navajo-Hopi Honor Riders led the procession as community members cheered the Lady Pirates.

The parade ended at Valley High School with a parent-organized community dinner. Back-to-back gold trophies were prominently displayed for all too see.
