Toledo Public Schools and the city of Toledo are joining forces to put on the Parade of Champions to honor our very own Lady Rams of Rogers High School, winners of the Ohio Division II state championship in girls' basketball in March.
The Rogers team is the first to bring home to Toledo a title in the sport since 1981.
The team will be honored with a parade through downtown Toledo on Saturday, April 21, starting at 11 a.m.
The parade will stage on Jefferson Street between Summit and Huron streets. It will proceed north on North St. Clair Street to Jackson Street, will turn right (east) on Jackson to Summit and then will turn right (south) on Summit. The parade will conclude with a 30-minute rally in Promenade Park, during which Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz will present the team with the key to the city. If you'd like to be a part of this exciting event, please click on this link: Parade of Champions and follow the instructions to sign up. Organizers especially would like to invite members of past City League championship teams to be part of the festivities.
Dodge Rams will be used to drive the team in the parade, Cat Trick from the Toledo Walleye will be part of the fun, and Buckeye has agreed to produce a video for the ProMedica screen facing Promenade Park. More information will be posted on the Facebook pages and Twitter accounts of TPS and the city.
Make sure you spread the word so we can have a huge turn out for our TPS students! Hope to see you on April 21.
