The Hope School Falcons are heading back to Tavares, Fl. to compete in the Special Olympics State Basketball Tournament. 

Last year, both the Falcons, the varsity squad, and the Thunderbirds, the JV squad, brought home the gold last year. 

This year only the Falcons will be going back in hopes of bringing home that title again. 

Students and faculty at the Hope School wished the team good luck as they headed out of town Thursday morning. 

The Falcons will face Pasco County in the first round of the playoffs Friday.
