Springville and AGWSR Advance to 1A State Title Game


Defending champion Springville survived an overtime challenge from North Butler Wednesday to earn a return trip to the Class 1A girls state title game.

Bre Oxley converted a three-point play with 34.1 seconds left and top-ranked Springville held on to beat No. 5 North Butler 46-45 in a thrilling overtime semifinal matchup. That sends the Orioles (26-1) into Friday night's championship game against No. 3 AGWSR, a 47-40 winner over No. 10 George-Little Rock in the other semifinal.

Katie Eiben led Springville with 16 points. Elizabeth Schroeder shot 4-for-5 from 3-point range and led North Butler (22-2) with 14 points.

Jessica McDowell scored 15 points and third-ranked AGWSR (25-0) put its game away with free throw shooting down the stretch, making seven of eight in the final 51.5 seconds.
