TAYLORSVILLE — Three players scored in double figures as Fremont dominated American Fork 60-27 to claim the 5A girls state basketball championship.
Fremont held American Fork to just 14 percent shooting while they scorched the nets for 47.8 percent.
“It was not easy,” said senior guard McKenzie Burrows. “We’ve had our ups and our downs, but we just stayed together through it all and we’re a team, we’re a family.”
Sophomore Harley Hansen led the Silverwolves with 14 points and Shelbee Molen and Sydnee Ward combined for 24 points and six three-point shots.
The Silverwolves completed their dream season with a 23-2 record and their first state championship.
Junior Shelbee Molen gave credit to the support they have received from students and the community.
“We have the best crowd,” she said. “(We're) so thankful to them for coming out. We love them. It’s awesome.”
American Fork ran out of magic after knocking off three higher-seeded teams to earn a spot in the championship. They needed a shot at the buzzer by Jenna Shepherd to defeat Alta in the semifinals. Taylor Moeki was their leading scorer with five points.
