The community will be welcome at a pep rally for the Brown Deer boys basketball team this Thursday morning at 11 a.m. in the Novak Family Fieldhouse at the high school.
The event will honor the team and give it a good send-off as it prepares to take part in the WIAA State Tournament in Madison at the Kohl Center this weekend.
The team, which is making its first trip to state since 2002, will take on Manitowoc Roncalli in a state division 3 semifinal at 9:05 a.m. on Friday. The Falcons, coached by Kelly Appleby, defeated Ripon in the sectional final last Saturday to advance.
