SHAWNEE — For the second straight day, Washington fell behind early. Sequoyah-Tahlequah jumped on top 2-0 and looked like it might run away with the Class 3A state title game. But, for the second straight day, the Warriors fought back.

And after Saturday’s 5-3 victory over top-ranked Sequoyah-Tahlequah, Washington has a state championship to show for it.

Allison Wells, the team’s only senior and the pitcher who threw every inning of the state tournament, summed it up simply after the win.

“This was a pretty good way to end it,” she said. “This is what we wanted and worked for. We’re pretty confident and we’re aggressive. I was a little nervous but I wasn’t worried.”
