Chaparral girls basketball caps season with 5A state title
The top-seeded Chaparral girls basketball team rattled off 15 straight wins to end the season, with their most important victory coming in Tempe on Tuesday night.
The Firebirds defeated the No. 2 Mesquite Wildcats, 63-55, to take the 5A state title at Wells Fargo Arena.
Last year, the Wildcats ended the Firebirds' season in the semifinals on their way to winning the state title.
"It was so heartbreaking last year when they kicked us out, and that made us want it so much more," Chaparral senior guard Summer Menke said.
