8. Creighton Prep (14-10) 8
9. Fremont (15-10) -
10. Lincoln Northeast (12-14) -

Bellevue West ended the regular season with a loss and then caught fire, breezing to the final before holding off Westside in overtime for its fourth state crown. It was the second straight OT game for the Warriors. Norfolk made the biggest jump, largely because of its triple-overtime win over Omaha South. Creighton Prep and Fremont didn't make it to state but both were a whisker away. Northeast got on a roll at the right time and, despite the sub-.500 record, claims the last spot.

Class B Pvs
1. Omaha Skutt (22-6) 4
2. Elkhorn South (26-1) 1
3. Beatrice (22-3) 3
4. York (23-4) 2

6. Scottsbluff (16-10) 10
7. Ralston (11-11) 7
8. Norris (13-9) 8
9. Omaha Roncalli (14-12) -
10. Gering (19-6) 6

Omaha Skutt won its fourth state championship and second after qualifying via the wild card (the first in 2006). The SkyHawks used their size to great advantage at state. Elkhorn South, which had two wins over Skutt during the regular season, bounced back from its first loss to win the third-place game and claims the No. 2 spot ahead of Beatrice. 

Class C-1 Pvs
1. Bishop Neumann (22-6) 4
2. Wahoo (22-6) 7
3. Columbus Scotus (23-5) 3
4. Wayne (24-6) 6
5. Falls City (24-3) 8
6. Lincoln Christian (18-7) 2
7. Boone Central/NG (19-7) 1
8. Columbus Lakeview (16-8) 9
9. Cozad (17-9) -
10. Kearney Catholic (15-12) -

Wahoo was an empty town Saturday morning with the Neumann-Wahoo final. Neumann, which was the preseason No. 1 pick, beat the Warriors for the second time in two weeks to earn its fourth title. Christian missed the tourney by one point, but Falls City's overtime loss to Wahoo kept the Crusaders from dropping too far. 

Class C-2 Pvs
1. Archbishop Bergan (24-3) 1
2. Ainsworth (25-3) 8
3. Doniphan-Trumbull (24-5) 5
4. Hartington CC (17-8) 4
5. Hastings SC (18-6) 2
6. Freeman (24-6) 9
7. Southern Valley (21-4) 3
8. Winnebago (24-4) 6
9. Kimball (22-4) 10
10. Sutton (17-10) -

Archbishop Bergan was the preseason No. 1 pick, slipped and then regained the top spot before the tourney. Ainsworth proved to be very good at its high-flying style. Hartington Cedar Catholic and Hastings St. Cecelia missed state, but narrow losses to Ainsworth and Doniphan-Trumbull, respectively, pave the way for their positions.

Class D-1 Pvs
1. Randolph (23-4) 7
2. Overton (24-5) 5
3. Howells-Dodge (27-3) 1
4. Clearwater/Orchard (22-6) -
5. Elm Creek (20-4) 2
6. North Platte SP (24-2) 3
7. Lourdes CC (20-7) 6
8. St. Mary's (19-4) 4
9. BDS (19-7) 9
10. Hemingford (18-7) 10

Randolph upended favorite Howells-Dodge in district play, and then won the championship over Overton, which beat Howells-Dodge at state. Clearwater/Orchard moved in with its win over North Platte St. Patrick in the first round before finishing fourth. 

Class D-2 Pvs
1. Bancroft-Rosalie (26-4) 4
2. High Plains (27-2) 3
3. Falls City SH (25-5) 2
4. Exeter-Milligan (22-4) 1
5. Spalding/SA (23-5) 5
6. Wynot (20-6) 6
7. Parkview Christian (15-8) 8
8. Hitchcock County (21-4) 7
9. Lewiston (13-10) -
10. Wausa (18-6) -

Bancroft-Rosalie proved it was battle-tested with a schedule that had just one D-2 team before postseason play. The Panthers lost to High Plains in a district final, then avenged that loss and became the 18th team to win a state title after getting a wild-card berth.
