CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After six total nights at their hotels in Casper, the Cheyenne schools school returned to the Capital City on Wednesday.

The East Girls and Boys Basketball teams and Central Girls and Boys Basketball teams were only supposed to be in the Oil City until Sunday, but the blizzard had other plans.

It closed down I-25 until the interstate finally reopened on Wednesday morning.

An experience none of these teams will forget, will be especially memorable for the Indians and Lady T-Birds who won the state championship on Saturday.

It was the fifth state title for the East Girls and the 26th state title for the Central Boys.

Welcome home to all those who were stranded!
