The only thing standing in the way of the Millennium girls and a second state title in three years was Cactus Shadows, the only team to defeat the Lady Tigers this year.
But Millennium scored revenge with a dominant victory Nov. 21, taking the AIA 5A state trophy.
Coach Julie Vastine led last year’s team to second place in the state, following a 2018 championship year.
Eryn Jones and Jordan Miller were two of the standouts on a roster that includes Talea Mitchell, Elisa Saunders, Olivia Pavelchik, Bianca Perez, Calli Johnson, Annabella Blowers, Ava Krienitz, Olivia Flanagan, Charlotte Goto, Rosa Lynn Collier and Jocelyn Chavez Rivas.
In West Valley high school football, undefeated Desert Edge landed the eighth seed in the elite open division. The Scorpions must take down giant Chandler High Friday, Nov. 27, to move on for a potential championship run.
