Online Petition Created to Send Ribault High Girls Basketball Team To White House


An online petition is asking for an invitation to the White House for Jacksonville’s Ribault High School Lady Trojans basketball team.

The girls’ team won the Dick’s Sporting Goods High School Nationals tournament on Saturday at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

After warmly welcoming the team home at the Jacksonville airport, the Lady Trojans’ fans are now seeking the presidential treatment.

The petition posted Monday on the White House web site had about 40 signatures as of Tuesday afternoon. The goal is to get 100,000 signatures by May 4.
