The Royals will now head down to Tantasqua Regional High School in Fiskdale on March 10 to compete for the state title.
“I’m proud of them as it is,” Tes says of her Royals. “We can only go up from here.”
“They’re so happy right now,” says Wood. “All of their hard work paid off and that’s what I told them. I said, ‘You’ve worked too hard for this. Put your nerves aside.’”
