CLASS 4A GIRLS’ STATE CHAMPIONSHIP Rogers 46, Anniston 38

CLASS 4A GIRLS’ STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
Rogers 46, Anniston 38
    BIRMINGHAM – Rogers High School fell behind early to Anniston 5-0 Friday afternoon in the Class 4A girls’ state championship game before rallying to take an 11-point lead after one quarter. The Pirates then turned to a tenacious defense to seal the school’s first-ever state girls’ basketball championship with a 46-38 win at the BJCC Legacy Center.
   Rogers (32-3), coached by Blake Prestage, closed the season with its 20th win in a row thanks to a defense that limited Anniston (29-5) to just 16 of 60 from the field (26.7%) and only 3 of 22 in  the fourth quarter (13.6%). It was the school’s first state tourney appearance and last week’s Northwest Regional championship was the Pirates’ first regional tourney appearance, said Prestage.
    Freshman Madie Krieger led the way with 23 points, including 10-of-11 at the foul line, and had two assists and two steals to earn Class 4A state tourney MVP honors.  Erin Brown chipped in nine points and Gabby Davis had four points and 10 big rebounds.
    Anniston, coached by Eddie Bullock, kept close with some tenacious defense of its own. Led by guards Allasha Dudley and Anna-Meketra Garrett. Dudley had two steals and one blocked shot while handing out three assists and scoring four points. Garrett also had seven points, three assists and a steal. Center Tonia Foster was a force inside with 13 points and seven rebounds, and Jordyn Johnson had five points and 10 rebounds.
    Despite the stringent defense by both teams, Rogers had no turnovers in the first half, finished with five and Anniston only had 11 total.

    The Class 4A All-Tourney Team included: Madie Krieger, Rogers (MVP); Erin Brown, Rogers; Allasha Dudley, Anniston; Toniah Foster, Anniston; Trinity Hambright, Greensboro; Jailatt Swain, Childersburg.
    The Class 4A boys’ championship game is the final contest of Friday’s championship action at the 97th AHSAA State Basketball Championships. Classes 5A, 6A and 7A will close out the state finals on Saturday.
    All championship games are being live-streamed over the NFHS Network’s subscriber-based program and broadcast over the AHSAA Radio Network. The finals are also being shown over the Alabama Cable Network.
