(SPRINGFIELD, Mo) Platte Valley faced off against Leeton in the Class 1 Girls Basketball State Championship Game.

Platte Valley was able to battle in the first half and eventually take a big enough lead to go on to win 56 to 44.

After losing last year's State Championship, Head Coach Tyler Pederson says it left a "sour taste" and the team was determined to win this year.
