What ensued in March of 1977 made Mount Si High School history.

The three basketball players, then seniors, with the help of a few additional teammates and coaches, found themselves in a jam-packed University of Puget Sound Field House - with most of Fall City's, Snoqualmie's and North Bend's populations also present - about to do the unthinkable: win a state championship.
