Gilbert Leading Edge Academy tops Sedona Red Rock for 2A girls basketball title
All year long, the score 70-39 hung in the Gilbert Leading Edge Academy girls basketball weight room.
That was the final score when the Spartans fell in the final last year, and they reminded themselves constantly as they sought redemption.
The nagging reminder paid off Saturday, as they beat the Sedona Red Rock Scorpions, 50-44, to win the 2A state title at Prescott Events Center.
"Everything we did this season was to make sure last season didn't happen again," Leading Edge head coach Erik Gray said. "To get here, to win, it's amazing."
