A crowd of nearly 600 enthusiastic fans saw the Litchfield CLC girls end Hyre's 32-game league-winning streak by a score of 34-24. The Litchfield boys team then took on the tough East Dragons who defeated Litchfield twice during the regular season. Great defense and timely shooting propelled the Argonauts to a 46-36 win. Stars were aplenty for Litchfield in both contests. The Lady Argos were led by Sydney Sneed (12 pts.), Leah Cheatham (eight pts.) and Cassidy Blackmon (eight pts.). Madison Dies and Dakota Cooper provided defense and rebounding as the Lady Argos outscored Hyre in the second half 19-7 to bring home the hardware. The first half was well played by Jerry Simcox and the Lady Hawks as they battled to tie Litchfield 15-15. McKenzi Corple led a tough Hyre team but could not overcome the Argos who supplied a deep bench for head coach Jeff Whited. Hyre's impressive winning streak ended at 32.

In the nightcap, Solomon Petrie (17 pts.) scored on several key three-point shots in the second half to help Litchfield defeat the regular-season champs, the East CLC Dragons. Marcel Boyce Jr. chipped in with 10 points, and Jonathon Lash added six for Litchfield. The Dragons battled back behind Laneer Surles and Jason Rushin to take the lead in the second half. Tough defense and full-court pressure applied by Amir Hubbard and the rest of the Argonauts made things tough on the Dragons. Foul trouble caused East problems all night with Surles picking up his fifth personal early in the last quarter. Litchfield seized the moment, reclaiming the lead, and never looked back. Coach Steve Staszak guided Litchfield to the impressive final score of 46-36 and brought the championship home to Litchfield.

Congratulations to all APS middle school basketball teams for an exciting a very successful season.
