GIRLS STATE TOURNAMENT (at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines)

DES MOINES — Bri Jensen hit four free throws in the final 14 seconds of the game, including the clinchers with six seconds to play, as No. 7 Kingsley-Pierson opened State tournament play with a 65-61 victory over No. 6 Marquette Catholic Monday at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.  The Lady Panthers advance to the 1A semifinals against top-rated Springville at 10 a.m. Thursday morning.  Jensen finished with 18 points with Addison Hirschman leading the K-P scoring with 22.  Marissa Schroeder had 38 for the Mohawks.  Marquette scored the first ten points of the game before K-P recovered to lead 35-31 at halftime and 47-44 heading into the fourth quarter.  The Mohawks pulled to within 63-61 with nine seconds to play before Jensen’s two foul shots iced the victory.  Jensen sent the Panthers to the State tournament with a pair of free throws in the Regional finals against Newell-Fonda with no time left on the clock last Monday.

LE MARS — The magical tournament run by No. 3 Remsen St. Mary’s continued Monday night with a 56-51 win over perennial power Boyden-Hull in the 1A Sub-State final at the Le Mars Community gym.  Junior Nicholas Ruden led the Hawks to victory with 18 points while Colin Schroeder dropped in 13 and Jacob Wesselmann 12.  But it was R.J. Staab’s lone point of the night that iced the outcome for St. Mary’s as he hit one of two foul shots with nine seconds to play to extend a three point lead.  Colin Schroeder added another free throw with 3.9 seconds to play to send the St. Mary’s faithful into a wild celebration that may have even surpassed the State championship celebration last summer following the Hawks fourth State baseball title.  Remsen St. Mary’s will take a perfect 24-and-0 record to their first-ever State basketball tournament starting next Monday at the Wells Fargo Arena.  The pairings for all four classes will be announced Wednesday at 1 p.m. in a special bracket show on the IHSSN website.  No. 10 Boyden-Hull closed out a 17-and-8 season and were led by Mitchell Diekevers with 15 points and Marcus Rens had 14.  The Comets were looking for their 17th State appearance but now have been absent from the State tournament field since 2013.

GIRLS STATE TOURNAMENT (at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines)

DES MOINES — Mikayla Nachazel poured in 32 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to lead top-rated Springville to a 61-43 victory over No. 7 Kingsley-Pierson Thursday morning in the 1A semifinals at the Girls State Tournament in Des Moines.  Nachazel scored 22 of those 32 in the first half to lead the Orioles to a 37-16 lead at halftime.  Senior Allison Bailey, who spent most of the second quarter on the bench with three fouls, scored nine points during a 15-4 run to start the second half for Kingsley-Pierson to cut the deficit to 41-31 with 4:21 to play in the quarter.  After a timeout, Springville scored the next eight points and were never seriously challenged again.  The Orioles took a 16-point lead into the fourth quarter.  Bailey ended up with 14 points to lead the Lady Panthers with Bradi Harvey adding 10.  Leading scorer Addison Hirschman (20.0 ppg) was held without a field goal by an Orioles defense that was limiting opponents to 26.7 ppg.  Hirschman finished with six points on 6-of-8 from the free throw line.  Hirschman did grab nine rebounds for Kingsley-Pierson, who closes the season at 24-and-2.  They lose two seniors in Bailey and Faith Seggerman.  Springville will attempt to make it two State titles in a row when they meet Turkey Valley in Friday’s 1A championship game.  Springville beat Turkey Valley 49-48 in last year’s title game.

DES MOINES — Mikayla Nachazel scored 15 points and grabbed 14 rebounds and Springville shut down Turkey Valley 45-36 Friday night to win its second consecutive Class 1A state championship.  Rylee Menster added 14 points and four assists for the Orioles (25-2), who won their third title overall and became the first 1A team to repeat since Rock Valley in 2002 and 2003. It was a rematch of last year’s championship game, which Springville won 48-47.  Springville also won the state title in 2008.   Kingsley-Pierson junior Addison Hirschman was named to the 1A All-Tournament team.

Veerbeek had been dominant in her first two games at state, putting up 55 points and 29 rebounds, and was voted captain of the all-tournament team.

GIRLS STATE TOURNAMENT (at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines)
CLASS 3A CHAMPIONSHIP
#2-Pocahontas Area (27-1) 61, #1-Sioux Center (26-1) 38

DES MOINES — Elle Ruffridge scored 22 points in the final game of her record-breaking career to lead Pocahontas Area past Sioux Center 61-38 Saturday for the Indians’ second straight Class 3A state championship.  Whether she was scoring herself or setting up teammates, the dynamic 5-foot-4 guard delighted her school’s large fan following one last time in a victory that was surprisingly one-sided.  Sioux Center entered the game 26-0 with a talented group of athletes, but the Warriors were no match for their quicker, sharp-shooting opponent. Pocahontas (27-1) made 12 3-pointers and held Sioux Center scoreless in the fourth quarter.  Ruffridge went 6-for-8 from 3-point range and added seven rebounds, four assists and two steals.

CLASS 4A CHAMPIONSHIP
#8-North Scott (21-5) 52, #1-Marion (24-2) 40, overtime

DES MOINES — Karli Rucker scored 24 points and North Scott dominated the overtime period to win the Class 4A state championship with a 52-40 victory over Marion on Saturday night.  North Scott (21-5) rallied from a six-point deficit early in the fourth quarter, then outscored Marion 13-1 in the extra four minutes to win going away. It was the first state championship for the Lancers after two runner-up finishes.

CLASS 5A CHAMPIONSHIP
#2-West Des Moines Valley (24-2) 71, #5-Cedar Falls (23-3) 59

DES MOINES — Zoe Young scored 21 points and West Des Moines Valley used a big second-quarter burst to beat Cedar Falls 71-59 Saturday night and win the Class 5A state championship.  Hannah Fuller added 16 points and seven rebounds for the Tigers (24-2), who wiped out a seven-point deficit with an 18-2 run that left Cedar Falls scrambling to catch up.  The title was the first for Valley and came in the school’s 12th trip to the state tournament and fourth appearance in the finals.
