CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Championship Saturday arrived at the West Virginia girls state tournament, where six teams remained to play three games for the right to cut down the nets.

Record-breaking streaks were put to the test, while revenge was on the minds of a couple challengers who would like to get their shine as champions.

CHAMPIONSHIP SATURDAY
CLASS A: St. Joseph defeated St. Marys 83-48
CLASS AA: Westside defeated Sissonville 43-33
CLASS AAA: Parkersburg South (25-0) vs. Morgantown (17-8), 7:15 p.m.

That can’t be more evident than in the Class A final pitting No. 1 St. Joseph Central and No. 2 St. Marys for the fourth time in five years. The Irish (23-3() nabbed their sixth straight title and extended their 83-game win streak over in-state opponents.

St. Marys (24-2) was unable to avenge a 73-32 loss in the 2013 championship game and capture their first state title since 1990.

In Class AA, Westside made its third straight appearance in the title game and took a 43-33 win over Sissonville, which won its last state title in 2003.

The Renegades (21-3) were fueled by Marshal commitment Hope Lester’s18 points and 19 rebounds.

Sissonville (23-4) had a 10-game win streak snapped after upsetting top-seeded Fairmont Senior in the semifinals.

The most intriguing game of the day may be the nightcap in Class AAA, as Parkersburg South (25-0) looks to defend their 2013 title and complete an undefeated season. The only problem is the team that has given them the most fits, Morgantown (17-8), stands in the way.

    Regarding our Catholic School System in the Diocese of Wheeling /Charleston we as parents choose to send our kids to a Catholic School we pay our taxes plus we pay tuition, it is the right choice for my kids my grand kids. Our Catholic Schools are open to all peoples of faith.

    I wonder if AAA schools had to compete against the private schools and there multi state recruitment efforts only then people would make a big deal about it.
