Not a single close boys basketball championship today.
But here are your champs.
Boys: Heights (6A), Bishop Miege (5A), KC Sumner (4A), Wichita Collegiate (3A), Berean Academy (2A), Hanover (1A).
Girls: Olathe South (6A), Andover Central (5A), Cheney (4A), Thomas More Prep (3A), Olpe (2A), South Gray (1A).
That’s a lot of good basketball the state of Kansas has seen this week. A lot of worthy champs, a lot of disappointed players and coaches whose teams came close.
Here are some of the great storylines.
6A boys: Heights dominates BV Northwest in the title game, winning its second straight. (Check my 6A post from Saturday for video from all the Heights starters)
6A girls: Olathe South beats Wichita Heights for coach Steve Ingram’s first title in 21 years at Olathe South. It was his fourth title game.
5A boys: Miege dominates. As expected.
5A girls: Andover Central coach Stana Jefferson leads the Jags to their second state title and second undefeated state title, first in 5A.
4A girls: Cheney girls win without Merissa Quick, ending Concordia’s lengthy winning streak.
3A boys: Wichita Collegiate wins by 40.
2A boys: Berean Academy coach Lewis Wiebe gets that state title.
2A girls: Olpe coach Jesse Nelson ends 29-year drought between state titles.
