(WSLS 10 Sports) - The 4A Girls State Championship this morning featured the William Fleming Lady Colonels who were looking for their first ever state championship while the Monocan Chiefs were looking for their third consecutive state title. It was a tough battle for the Colonels one faced with many turnovers and early foul trouble.
The Chiefs had a lightning fast start that took the Colonels out of their game early and it was thanks in large part to their shooting and pesky defense. William Fleming tries to keep things close but Monocan took a 40 point lead at one point. Monocan won the 4A Girls State Championship 93 - 56. Jaiden Morris scored 37 points total with 33 of them in the first half.
William Fleming Coach Champ Hubbard had to say this after the game, "I think that my girls fought all the way through. Regardless of the score, I know what effort my kids put on the floor and I think they put a tremendous effort out there on the floor."
Monocan set a VHSL record with the most points scored in a championship game.
