The final was 64 to 62.

This was the fifth state championship the T-birds have won under head coach Doug Woodard.

The comeback was led by freshman Josiah Dotzler and senior Louis Fidler.

Frankie Fidler hit the two free throws after a Saint Thomas foul that ultimately won the game for the Thunderbirds.
