“We want anyone that has paid to come watch us play basketball to walk out of the gym and say, ‘Wow, did you see that team?’ That’s exactly what we did. We put the wow factor on full display tonight.” — Wichita Collegiate boys basketball coach Mitch Fiegel after his team beat Minneapolis by 40 points for its third Class 3A title in four seasons

“I knew it was all bittersweet, you lose a point guard like Tiffany Bias who I’ve had for four years, and Kaitlin Tennyson and Maddie Chapin along with her, I’m screaming and yelling and crying all at the same time. I’ll miss them tremendously.” — Andover Central girls basketball coach Stana Jefferson after the Jaguars won the Class 5A title with an undefeated record, its second undefeated title in three seasons

“People didn’t think we were any good without (center) Merissa (Quick). But we have a good team without her. We wanted to show people we could win without Merissa.” — Cheney junior Ally Nikkel after the Cardinals upset Concordia in the Class 4A title game with star Merissa Quick out with a broke foot suffered during the 4A semifinals

“This just means a lot to me, with all the hard work that I’ve done in the past four years of my bowling career. It’s all worth it.” — South senior William Paul after winning the Class 6A individual bowling title

“A race is like life. The prize is at the end, not at the beginning. A lot of people start strong, but we talk about finishing strong so we can claim that prize.” — Bishop Carroll boys cross country coach Cory Swords after the Eagles won the 5A title

“It took me awhile, but I definitely started crying. It means that much to me. It’s just really, really special.” — Mulvane’s Nikki Trooien-Smith after the Wildcats won their third straight Class 4A boys cross country title

“Don’t think about the whole six-in-a-row thing. Focus on this one because you can’t have the six without the one.” — Hutchinson football coach Randy Dreiling on his team’s focus before winning its sixth straight title, second in Class 5A „

“We’ve had five guys all year who have pretty much been right there near the top. The guys played phenomenal today and battled through bad shots and scored when they could.” — Kapaun Mount Carmel boys golf coach Dan Phillips after the Crusaders cruised to a 22-stroke victory in the Class 5A tournament

“Last year was a struggle. . . . I really had a slump my junior season and really didn’t play anywhere close to where I expected. And then I really dedicated myself in the offseason to getting a lot better and improving all around in all areas of my game. It paid off.” — Hillsboro senior Daniel Kunataev after winning the Class 3A individual golf title

“This is something I’ve dreamed about since I was little, becoming a state champion, so now to be one is amazing. Even though I had a good lead, I still went into my races thinking they were going to be close. I still wanted to push myself to do my best.” — Wichita Independent’s Christian Kilgore after winning the Class 5-1A 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke

“You have to have the perfect race. My first instinct was to look at the board and see where I was. I just yelled and screamed and hugged my coach, my friends, my grandpas, my aunt, my mom. Everybody.” — North’s Logan Lassley after winning the Class 6A 50 freestyle

“I really just put my head down and race and don’t look around. I know that once I get into that zone and get in that sprint mindset, it’s just about finishing strong.” — Wichita Independent’s Chesley Kilgore after winning the Class 5-1A 100 and 500 freestyles

“For me, I felt like I was on cloud nine the first time. This go around, I’m just really, really happy. The first one I couldn’t believe it happened.” — McPherson’s Nathan Wehrman after he teamed with Mark Gayer to win the Class 5A doubles tennis title for the second straight season

They even got coach to smile.” — Goddard assistant girls tennis coach Dan Buchanan after the Lions took third in Class 6A and then presented coach John Markham with the trophy. Markham died a few days later after a long battle with liver cancer

“It’s so surprising. I’m not crying because I’m tired. I’m crying because I’m happy.” — Wichita Independent’s Imani Fenner after sweeping the Class 3A 100 and 200 meters

“We did it with a bunch of kids that nobody had maybe heard of. We had 11 guys, everyone scored one point here, two points there, a point here, a point there. It was a team effort by a bunch of guys that no one expected them to do well.” — Goddard wrestling coach Brett Means after the Lions won their third straight team title, edging Derby by 1½ points, and their fourth in five seasons

“This is my last high school match. It’s the last match I’ll wrestle in high school. I thought it would be another match, but it was way more. Going out with a bang, getting the three, being a four-time state finalist is all I could ask for.” — Northwest’s Kyle Caylor after winning his third straight Class 6A title at 215 pounds

“I think they feed off each other. They bang each other up all the time in practice. They’re almost one.” — Campus wrestling coach Travis Bourne on Cody Beasley and Dalton Miller

“After he almost pinned me, I decided to go all-out. I figured since this was the last time ever wrestling in high school, I might as well leave all out on the mat.” — El Dorado senior Dylan Walker, who beat Clay Center’s Zach Anderson for the 189- pound title in Class 4A
