The Fort Yukon (Alaska) Lady Eagles capped off a winning streak to capture the first state championship in the school’s history. Their coach said it’s like “winning the Super Bowl”.  The Navajo Prep (New Mexico) boys team, also the Eagles, won their first state championship, joined by a championship win by the school’s girls team. It’s basketball tournament time and we’re talking free throws, three-pointers, and trophies.
