Richland High students skip class for State

RICHLAND, Wash. -- You want school spirit? How about those Richland Bombers?

Around 250 students from the high school had excused absences to go cheer on their team in Tacoma.

Reps with the district say this is well above normal for excused absences.

Ten teachers were also out today to cheer on the team. Richland stomped Wenatchee last night, and the school expects even more kids to make the trip over the mountains for the game against Todd Beamer tonight.
