INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WFIE) - The Tecumseh girls basketball team has won its first state title in program history.

After punching a ticket to their first-ever state appearance last weekend, the Lady Braves capped off their historic postseason run on Saturday morning, beating Lafayette Central Catholic in an impressive 60-53 victory at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Tecumseh sophomore Jenna Donohoo led the way with 29 points and 13 rebounds, while senior Kaybree Oxley trailed right behind with 19 points and 11 boards of her own. These double-double performances helped guide the Braves to victory, securing the IHSAA Class 1A state crown.

“This is just amazing,” Tecumseh head coach Adam Lubbehusen said. “I don’t know, it’s hard to explain I guess. It really hasn’t sunk in yet, but it was just amazing.”

“This was just a breathtaking moment,” Donohoo said. “I’ll remember this for the rest of my life, and all these people here. It’s so great that all these people came to support.”

“I did not think it would be this good,” Oxley said. “But we wanted it so bad, and we worked our hardest.”

Tecumseh ends its state-winning season with a 20-8 record.
