DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Kayla Armstrong drove the lane scoring with 9 seconds left to push the Xavier Saints to the class 4A title over Harlan 53-52.  The win secured Xavier's 4th state championship since 2003.

Armstrong's bucket came just 8 seconds after Harlan's Taylor Wagner scored to give the Cyclones a 52-51 lead.  The Saints chose to not call a timeout, instead inbounding the ball right away.  Armstrong then drive the length of the court for the game winning basket.  Harlan would fail to get off a shot on their final possession.

Armstrong led the way with 23 points in the championship game.  Wagner tallied 16 to lead Harlan.
