RACHEL — Look out Charleston, the Lady Huskies are headed back to town.
Defending Class AAA state champion No. 1 North Marion will gun for a second straight state title next week after defeating North Central Athletic Conference rival Morgantown, 64-47, in Tuesday’s Region I co-title game.
“Three steps down, three to go,” North Marion head coach Mike Parrish said. “We played hard and it was a battle from beginning to end. It’s a shame that two conference teams had to play for it, but that’s the way it goes. We had four Top 10 teams in our region.
“We’re just happy to get back down to Charleston and defend the title.”
And just like in the win over Fairmont Senior last week, one Husky set the stage early on.
