The Corner Canyon Boys Basketball team won their first ever state championship on Saturday night, taking down the Jordan Beetdiggers 62-45. The Chargers dominated the second half after holding only a 1 point lead at halftime. As a team, CCHS was 30-35 from the free throw line, including a 17-18 performance from Hayden Welling.
This week’s wins included Olympus, who eliminated the Chargers the last 2 seasons, and Jordan, who beat the Chargers twice this season on buzzer beaters. The revenge tour is complete.
This was the last game for five seniors: Andrew Heath, John Mitchell, Gabe Toombs, Luke Warnock, and Hayden Welling. In the past three seasons, these young men and their teammates have notched a 9-2 record in the playoffs.
