, CA – On Friday and Saturday of last week, two different high schools took home top honors at the CIF State Championship tournament. The High School Girls team won the Division 3 Championship on Friday afternoon. Less than 24 hours later, Technical High School’s Girls team won the Division 4 State Championship. Priot to that time, it had been more than 10 years since any Athletic League basketball team had won a California Championship.

The entire Tech team made the trip up to the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento hours early so they could cheer on their fellow ers going for the D-3 Championship. They watched a powerful performance by the Wildcats, who beat McFarland High from near Bakersfield by a score of 51-35. Senior Morgan Dunbar scored 20 points to lead the Wildcats to the first Athletic League girls championship in 14 years. “It’s unbelievable,” said Dunbar. “To bring home a championship for , it means a lot, cause I’m from , so it’s just great for us.”

“We play together as a sisterhood. Nobody puts each other down, and if anyone does have a down play, we just lift each other up,” said Wildcats center Mae Alexander.

Head coach Orlando Gray won two state championships when he was an assistant with Tech’s team in 2004 and 2005 and his daughter played for Tech. But he enthusiastically brags about his current team. “It’s a really good group of kids, great parents, great students. Our team GPA is a 3.6. Not exaggerating that. Four kids are over a 4.0. They’re solid as a group, they’re solid as people.”

Some of the Wildcats made the trip back to Sacramento on Saturday morning to see the Tech Bulldogs take on Northview High from Covina in the Division 4 State Championship. The Bulldogs started to dominate early in the game, and turned it up in the second half, running away with it at the end. The final score was 55-27. “There’s a lot of great success stories in and us and High are two of them. Like I said, tough times, but our school is on the rise. And our basketball program is, as well,” said head coach, LeRoy Hurt.

Guard Jordan Smith led the way with 19 points and center Stephanie Okowi scored 16 points and snagged an astounding 24 rebounds, which is a Division 4 championship record. “It was really different playing in a way bigger court where men play. And lights beaming on you and stuff. It’s a lot to take in but it was a great experience. And we were prepared for this night… this morning,” Smith corrected herself, receiving laughs from the room.

The Bulldogs’ win came a day after International Women’s Day. “It says a lot because you know, also in , our Mack Boys win championships, state championships every year, so it’s good for the women, women’s basketball, and for High and Tech to be winning state,” added Smith.

Playing within the Athletic League, Tech lost to High three times this year. “Those experiences led us to win the state championship today, so going back, yes, we want to play O High (again). Is there like a Division 3 vs. Division 4,” asked senior point guard, Tiffany Siu to more laughter.

“It’s tough to win a state title. It’s impossible sometimes. I could coach another 20 years and never get to this moment again. I’m just real thankful that they took advantage of it, for them, for ourselves, for our school and for our program,” said Coach Hurt.

The District and the schools are now in the process of planning a celebration for both teams, which will include a parade through .
