The Marian Catholic Spartans girls basketball team went into the state championship game with a chip on its shoulder—looking to avenge its lone loss of the regular season against contender Rolling Meadows.
The outcome was different this time around. The Spartans took down Rolling Meadows 48-47 with a buzzer beater, for their first state title, ever.
The girls returned to the Heights yesterday, escorted by the fire department and with a giant trophy in tow.
“It’s a dream come true,” winning point scorer Kauai Bradley, told Sun-Times Media.
The Spartans wrapped up their champion season with a 33-1 record.
