The Pisgah High School girls basketball team lost the State Championship game today at Chapel Hill to the Kinston Vikings by 11 points.

The Bears held on to the lead by a small margin until the third quarter, but they lost their momentum in the second half as Vikings made several three-point shots.

Hundreds of Pisgah fans made the four-hour trip to support the team and Canton police and firetrucks gave the team a warm welcome home by escorting the buses back to Pisgah High.
