Scott county won two state championships yesterday with Jordan and Shakopee taking titles. Another thing they had in common was they were both #1 seeds that won it all.

Windom broke the #1 seed streak by taking the title in A.

Shakopee won their back to back title without a senior on the floor. The Sabers won a tight four set match with Eastview. Can a three-peat be far behind? From the StarTribune and St. Paul Pioneer Press and Shakopee Valley News.

Jordan reclaimed the AA title after a year away from the throne. The Jaguars prevented Marshall from a back to back experience. From the StarTribune and Marshall Independent.

Windom beat one of their own. Bethlehem Academy coach Franz Boelter is a Windom grad (1970). The Eagles came up aces against the Cards in the four set win with a 15-7 advantage. The Eagles experience from a year ago helped get them over the top this year. BA's Stephanie Meschke played despite a severe stomach ache.
