STATEHOUSE - State Rep. Mark Messmer (R-Jasper) would like to extend his utmost congratulations to the Washington High School boys' basketball team on their 3A state championship title for the second year in a row.

The Washington Hatchets defeated Culver Academies on Saturday in Conseco Fieldhouse 61-46. The Hatchets have won the state championship four out of the last seven years, and they tie the record for the most state championship wins in Indiana high school basketball history with seven championships.

"These players are great representatives for their community in the way they conduct themselves and through their achievements," said Rep. Messmer. "I am very proud of them and wish those graduating the best in their future careers."
