It had been over 30 years since the Greenbrier East girl’s team won a state title. The Lady Spartans came close in 2004 but lost to a loaded South Charleston team.

The Bridgeport Lady Indians seemed to be the clear-cut favorite to win the state tournament. Still, Greenbrier East took care of business, holding Bridgeport to its lowest point total that tournament.

Now-Governor Jim Justice and the Lady Spartans won the state final, 52-47.
