High school champions crowned

St. Thomas Aquinas of Kansas was named the top-ranked team in the final NSCAA High School Boys National Rankings after beating Bishop Miege, 2-0, in the Kansas 5A state championship game.

The Saints won their seventh consecutive state championship and finished unbeaten and untied for the time in the program's history.

"We're very fortunate, you know, because the stars and all that have to align," Coach Craig Ewing told the Kansas City Star. "But what it tells me is a group of kids in Kansas who worked their butts off and are coachable can achieve something. It's really a neat symbol, I think."
