I captured this shot at the Inverness corner this morning as the team was about to head out of town on their way to Bowling Green and an eventual state championship. It was a very cool scene as groups of friends, family, and fans gathered at each corner on the way out of town.

If you were following our Twitter feeds or the live updates provided in the previous post - by now you know that Highlands did in fact capture their fifth straight state title. It apparently doesn't matter which class you put the Bluebirds in and they still find a way to beat everyone and capture the state title.
According to Mike Fields at Kentucky.com this team was a record breaker:
Highlands piled up 507 yards, giving it a state-record 7,516 yards this season. It also established single-season state records for points (849) and TDs (121).
Don't forget to stop by and offer congratulations tomorrow night during the Holiday Walk after 8pm at the High School.
