Ritchie County lost for the second straight year in the finals to Oak Glen.
"I'm very proud of them,'' said Ritchie County coach Melanie Allender. "They've worked hard to get here. The beginning of our year wasn't anything where anybody thought we'd be here. My seniors were here last year and wanted it so bad. It just didn't click and go their way. It's heart-breaking.''
Oak Glen's Riser loses four seniors to graduation, including three all-tournament picks.
"I have some really good kids that are coming in to play,'' she said. "They're working with them every day so that's a good possibility [of a three-peat].''
