Heavy rain did not dampen the spirits of Bluford residents Saturday as they gathered at Webber Township High School to show their support for the school's Trojans baseball team. The Trojans returned to Bluford that day from the state finals in Peoria. Their bus received a police escort through Mt. Vernon and Bluford before arriving at the high school for a special reception ceremony in the gym. During the ceremony, team members posed for pictures and visited with family and friends. The team was the runner-up in the 1A State Championship.
