    Yes, after defeating Monsignor Scanlan for the Catholic High School Athletic Association City Championship Class AA, Christ the King, a couple of days later, again defeated Scanlan this time for the CHSAA State Championship Class AA. Christ the King now advances to the NYS Federation Tournament of Champions Class AA.

    If it wasn't Demry finishing on drives to the rim, it was Klarke Sconiers '19 finishing off shots inside, or it was Natalija Marshall '20 connecting on short jumpers, and with the offense clicking on all cylinders, along with a stifling defensive beginning, Christ the King jumped out to a commanding 16-0 lead just over five minutes into the game.

    Pretty much the perfect start for the Royals, Sconiers said she knew this kind of start from them was coming. Starts to games haven't always been the best this season for Christ the King and she wanted to set a tone and show that they could change that way when the game mattered most.

    "We expressed in the locker room how we need to come with intensity," Sconiers admitted. "We usually get off to sluggish starts and that's what usually let's teams stay with us. We didn't want that happening today."

    ...

    Scoring a game high 20 points was Demry, while Sconiers added 16 points and 11 rebounds while still sick and full of Mucinex after sitting out most of Friday's semifinal game.

    The win puts Christ the King now back in a familiar position of going to Glens Falls to play for a NYS Federation Tournament of Champions Class AA title in two weeks time. They fell short of winning the championship a year ago, losing to Baldwin in heartbreaking fashion, and with so much to play for this time around Sconiers says it's going to be near impossible to deny them this time around.

    "That is something that pushes us every day knowing how close we were, and we want to do it for Clare," Sconiers said referring to former Christ the King player and assistant coach Clare Droesch who passed away over the summer after a long battle with breast cancer. "Clarke knows how special this group is and this is something we definitely owe to her."
