Class B: Norris vs. Lincoln Pius X, 3.7.2015

Lincoln Pius X's Becky Brokaw fouls Norris' Shay Brown during the Class B girls state championship at Pinnacle Bank Arena, on Saturday, March 7, 2015.

(Records through end of season)

Class A Rec. Pvs.
1. Omaha Westside 24-4 3
2. Omaha Benson 26-1 1
3. Lincoln Northeast 25-2 2
4. Kearney 20-6) 7
5. Norfolk 15-13 --
6. Bellevue West 21-6 5
7. Omaha Central 16-7 6
8. Millard West 19-7 4
9. Fremont 18-9 8
10. Papillion-La Vista 14-9 10

A case could be made for leaving Omaha Benson No. 1 based on its overall season and wins of 16 and 13 points over Westside earlier. Those victories occurred, however, before Benson Super-Stater Kianna Ibis went down with a season-ending ACL injury. Westside clearly looked to be the better team at state as Benson was upset by Norfolk in the first round. Northeast and Kearney both had road wins late in the regular season at Norfolk, and both are ahead of the state runner-up Panthers, who also knocked off No. 10 Papillion-La Vista in districts and No. 6 Bellevue West in the state semifinals. A first-round district loss to Omaha North sends Millard West tumbling.

Class B Rec. Pvs.
1. Lincoln Pius X 22-2 1
2. Norris 18-7 3
3. Waverly 16-8 4
4. Omaha Gross 18-10 10
5. Elkhorn South 19-7 2
6. York 22-5 6
7. Beatrice 16-8 5
8. Gretna 15-8 7
9. Elkhorn 18-7 8
10. Platteview 21-5 --

Norris’ strong challenge to Lincoln Pius X in the state finals nullifies a district loss to Platteview. Omaha Gross is rewarded for its first round state tourney win over Elkhorn South, avenging a loss to the Storm in the district final. Waverly was 14-3 after Christmas with wins over No. 5 Elkhorn South, No. 7 Beatrice, No. 8 Gretna and No. 10 Platteview. The losses came to Pius X and Norris. York switches spots with Beatrice, reversing a regular-season loss to the Lady Orange with a win in the district final.

Class C-1 Rec. Pvs.
1. Pierce 22-6) 3
2. Lincoln Christian 24-5 1
3. Kearney Catholic 26-3 4
4. Norfolk Catholic 21-7 2
5. Minden 22-3 5
6. Bishop Neumann 19-7 7
7. Wahoo 16-9 6
8. Stanton 23-2 8
9. West Point-Beemer 24-4 9
10. Omaha Concordia 18-6 10

No one in the top 10 lost to an unranked team in the postseason, so there are no new entries. Christian gets the nod for No. 2 over state runner-up Kearney Catholic based on the Crusaders’ 2-0 record against C-2 state runner-up Hastings St. Cecilia, which beat Kearney Catholic in midseason.

Class C-2 Rec. Pvs.
1. Crofton 29-0 1
2. Hastings St. Cecilia 23-4 3
3. Guardian Angels CC 25-4 2
4. Yutan 24-3 5
5. Sutton 23-6 6
6. Freeman 24-4 4
7. Elmwood-Murdock 19-6 8
8. Centura 18-9 9
9. North Platte St. Pat’s 23-4 --
10. Hemingford 21-3 10

St. Cecilia slides past GACC into No. 2 based on the Hawkettes’ near-upset of Crofton in the state finals. Superior drops out of the top 10 after a subdistrict loss to Sandy Creek. While Ponca won the wild-card tiebreaker over Hemingford for the last spot in the state tournament, Hemingford gets the nod over the Indians for No. 10 because of Ponca’s late-season loss to unranked Homer.

Class D-1 Rec. Pvs.
1. St. Mary’s 25-2 1
2. Dundy Co.-Stratton 28-1 6
3. Friend 21-6 9
4. Howells-Dodge 22-7 7
5. Blue Hill 23-4 3
6. Emerson-Hubbard 23-4 4
7. Humph. St. Francis 21-6 5
8. Fullerton 20-5 2
9. Creighton 21-5 8
10. CWC 18-7 10

Like C-1, the top 10 was undefeated against unranked teams in the postseason. Friend takes a huge jump by giving state champion St. Mary’s it’s most competitive game of the state tournament in the first round. Fullerton slides six spots for losses to Humphrey St. Francis and Blue Hill.

Class D-2 Rec. Pvs.
1. Falls City Sacred Heart 28-2 1
2. Wynot 22-6 2
3. Stuart 23-6 3
4. Sandhills/Thedford 22-6 7
5. Hampton 20-5 5
6. Giltner 21-5 6
7. Mullen 21-5 8
8. Exeter-Milligan 15-9 4
9. Wauneta-Palisade 20-6 9
10. Lyons-Decatur NE 15-9 10

Exeter-Milligan gets a four-spot demotion for getting upset by Meridian in subdistricts. Sandhills/Thedford is rewarded for its first round state tournament win over Giltner.
