The Norfolk State women’s basketball team is riding high off their MEAC championship win and celebrating the occasion significantly.
At a ceremony celebrating their conference title, the team was surprised by a local public transportation company commemorating their accomplishment.
In association with Hampton Roads Transit (HRT), a rail train was designed especially for the team decked out with a photo of their championship roster and a message saying, “Congratulations on a great season.”
