Do you believe in miracles? Cameron sophomore Ashlynn Van Tassell connected on two free throws to tie the game at 50, but what happened next will forever be remembered in West Virginia High School athletics.

Dragons’ freshman Maci Neely threw up a prayer as time quickly ticked off the clock, and it connected from three. That field goal was her second one of the game. She had gone 1-of-9 before the game-winner.

Cameron won 53-50.

Audio: South Charleston vs Greenbrier East (2004 Class AAA Girls State Championship)

This game marked the end of two of West Virginia’s most accomplished girl’s basketball players, Renee Montgomery and Alexis Hornbuckle. The South Charleston state title victory also gave the Black Eagles back-to-back championships.

South Charleston also became the seventh school in Class AAA girl’s history to win back-to-back titles. The victory gave Hornbuckle her fourth consecutive state title – two with Capital and two with the Black Eagles.

So. Charleston won by a final of 59-39.
