Cascade holds off Grundy Center charge to capture class 2A championship

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Grundy Center's comeback effort came up just short. Sixth ranked Cascade held off the late run to capture the class 2A state championship with a 41-37 win.

The Cougars saw a 13-point second half lead melt away, in big part due to a massive effort by the Spartans' Hailey Wallis. Wallis scored all 22 of Grundy Center's second half points including a pair of free throws that tied the game at 37 apiece with 1:16 remaining.

Cascade responded by hitting all four of their free throw attempts in the waning moments to seal the victory.

Cascade's Nicole McDermott led the Cougar charge with 15 points, nine rebounds, and eight steals.
