In Hopkins, basketball isn’t just a sport. It’s a community institution.
At no time is this more evident than during the state tournament. The games aren’t just about what’s happening on the court. They’re about the fans, the school colors and all the excitement that pulls a community together.
Patch would like your help capturing some of this atmosphere as the No.1-ranked girls team advances through the tournament. We invite you to share your photos with your neighbors here on Patch. All the photos will be included in the gallery above, and we’ll feature the best on our homepage throughout the tournament.
