BLHS softball wins 4A state championship

May 29, 2010

Last year it was the Basehor-Linwood boys celebrating a Class 4A state championship on the basketball court.

On Saturday, it was the BLHS girls' turn to hoist a championship trophy as the Bobcats' softball team topped Mulvane, 5-2, to claim the second state championship in school history in a Kansas State High School Activities Association-sponsored activity.

BLHS entered the state tournament was a No. 2 seed with a 21-2 record, but the Bobcats cruised past Colby in the quarterfinals Friday, 3-0, before edging Paola, 6-4, in Saturday's semifinal matchup.

Mulvane squeaked past Buhler, 2-0, in the other semifinal and set up the championship showdown.

BLHS ends its season with a 24-2 record.
