CLASS 3—-Stockton will try to win its third state championship in four years today after beating California 67-46 in the semifinals. The Lady Pintos had no answer for the 1-2 punch of Chelsea Kenney and Kyla Burns. Kenney finished with 22 points and Burns had 21, while Jessica Stanley added 10 for the 29-1 Lady Tigers. Stockton out-paced California 40-20 at the break and increased their lead to 54-28 going into the fourth quarter. California ended their season with a record of 26-4……St. Louis Metro had an amazing performance Thursday, as they advanced to the state championship game. Metro topped Hancock 49-25. Holding any team to 25 points is impressive, but it was even more eye-popping when you add Sonya Daugherty into the equation. The Stockton sharpshooter averages 32 points per game—seven points more than the entire team scored Thursday. Daugherty was held to just seven points in the semifinal game. Deidra Dace led all scorers with 20 points, as the Panthers pushed their record to 29-2 and Hancock goes home with a record of 26-3……..CLASS 2—-The four teams that made it to the final four in 2003 were back again in 2004 and there will be a re-match of the 2003 state championship game as well. Defending champion Skyline handed St. Joseph Christian their one and only loss of the season with a 58-49 final in the semis. The Lady Tigers led just 29-27 at the half, but pulled away in the third quarter and pushed their lead to 10 points going into the fourth. Skyline, which has won three titles since 1996, will go for its fourth today….Clopton, which finished second to Skyline last season, improved to 30-0 by topping Stoutland 64-62. But it wasn’t easy for the Lady Hawks, which overcame an eight-point deficit coming into the fourth quarter to get the win. They outscored the Lady Tigers 18-8 in the final period. Brandi Tipton had 19 points and 15 rebounds, while Megan Nacke had 17. Stoutland’s season ended with a 29-2 record.
