Norfolk Catholic and Pierce are perennially two of the top teams in Class C1 and they played for the state title in 2010 and 1999. This year, Pierce handed Norfolk Catholic its only loss of the regular season before Norfolk Catholic beat Pierce in the playoffs en route to the title.
The two other finalists were Scottsbluff-Gering and Millard North-Millard South.
