Xavier girls win 4A title
DES MOINES (AP) — Kayla Armstrong drove into the lane and scored with 9 seconds left Saturday to give Cedar Rapids Xavier a 53-52 victory over Harlan and the Class 4A girls state championship.
Armstrong scored just seconds after Harlan had taken a 52-51 lead when sophomore Taylor Wagner drove down the right side of the lane and banked in a shot.
Harlan called time to set up a final shot after Armstrong scored, but Wagner lost the ball dribbling up the floor and Xavier (17-9) had its fourth state championship.
Armstrong finished with 23 points and was voted captain of the all-tournament team. Harlan (23-3) became the state runner-up for the second time.
