The only challenge that was left was the Parkersburg Catholic Crusaders.

Webster County’s 47-40 victory over Parkersburg Catholic capped an undefeated season going 28-0, and it allowed the Highlanders to become the first Class A to finish the season undefeated since the 1987 Paden City team.

A game that will live on in the North Marion community forever.

As time was slowly ticking away, the Huskies needed a basket. Seth Barker hit a shot from a pass from his brother, Josh, that gave North Marion its first state basketball title.

That basket by Seth was the points he scored in the entire state tournament.

North Marion squeezed past Capital, 49-48.
