It's been 15 years since the T.C. Roberson baseball team has won a state championship, but the 2017 Rams have every intention of bringing home another state title this weekend.

The team was sent-off by family, friends and classmates Thursday morning as they made their way to Raleigh.

"It would be awesome. We've only done it three times, so to be able to bring another one home, that would be great," senior shortstop/pitcher Garrett Blaylock said.

The Rams are set to play Friday and Saturday on NC State's field. They will be taking on New Hanover High School for the 4A Championship.

"To win this weekend, we need to keep playing as one, to keep having each other's back, and not worry about really coming through in a situation because we know we got a brother that's going to step up and get the next thing done," senior third baseman Collin Watt said.
