But Ocean Springs walked away with the title after defeating both -- Northwest Rankin in the semis and Madison Central in the final -- en route to the program's first state title since 2011.
Ocean Springs' title was the highlight of the first state championship weekend for the 2019-2020 winter season. Gulfport (Miss.) and West Lauderdale (Miss.) claimed girls state titles secure a 1-2 finish in Mississippi. Gulfport went 21-0-4 while West Lauderdale finished 23-1-3, and its only loss was a 1-0 setback to Gulfport. In Hawaii, the girls season drew to a close with Kamehameha-Kapalama completing an undefeated season with a Division I state title.
The state No. 1s this week are Sunnyside (Ariz.), Montgomery (Calif.), Doral Academy (Fla.), Punahou (Hawaii), St. Paul's (La.), Ocean Springs (Miss.) and Alief Elsik (Texas) for boys and Chaparral (Ariz.), Upland (Calif.), Montverde Academy (Fla.), Kamehameha-Kapalama (Hawaii), Northshore (La.), Gulfport (Miss.) and Tompkins (Texas) for girls.
