West Rowan and Salisbury claimed state girls basketball titles on Saturday, with both games being shown statewide on TV.
West claimed a 60-50 victory over Rocky Mount in the 3A girls basketball state championship game played at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh. The Falcons finished 31-0 to tie the 2003–04 Salisbury Hornets for the most victories by a Rowan girls program without a loss.
Salisbury’s girls won their second straight 2A state title, this time 48-39 over Seaforth at the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill after starting out the game by getting down 13-0. The Hornets (27-3) made up for that slow start by controlling the game at the end.
