Coach Maurice Blakeney, thrilled with the outcome of the night, stated:

“Anytime you can win and go to a state championship, it’s big-for our culture, our program, and for these men. I want to be part of their journey and I don’t care what division you play in, if you’re playing for a state championship, it means something.”
