Soap Lake Eagles Fired Up For First Shot At State!

Soap Lake, WASH. - The Soap Lake Eagles are set to tip off in the first round of the State B Basketball Tournament in Spokane late Thursday evening, but back in the small town businesses and community members continue to spread support.
 
The downtown businesses are lined up with "Go Eagles!" signs and this morning many gathered to send them off to state.
 
Carmen Eckhart was one of those people.
 
"There were about three fire engines, a couple cop cars, everyone standing in the street," Eckhart said. "Sirens were going, we were holding up signs saying 'Go Eagles! Win at State and Have A Good Time!"
 
"The boys have never been (at state)," Eckhart said. "We're rooting them on here, hope to see them on tv tonight. We hope they win and maybe we can then see them another night after tonight."
