It was a small school spotlight Saturday at the Big House as state champions were crowned.
The day saw history made. The Seiling Lady Cats beat Hydro-Eakly 76-41 to win their fourth straight state championship. It’s the first time in the 101 year history of girls high school basketball records being kept that a team has won four straight state titles.
The morning session was bonkers as well. Varnum squared off with Hammon. Varnum trailed by six with just over two minutes to play. The Whippets mounted a massive comeback. Tied at 36, Varnum’s Savannah Deatherage got a steal and a layup plus a foul to give Varnum their first state title since 2009.
