The Iowa City West girls basketball team won the Class 4A state championship this past Saturday by defeating Ankeny, 61-56.

The Women of Troy – coached by B.J. Mayer — finished the season 23-1.

The scene after the game was positively chaotic, as the speakers blared traditional music after big wins and players, parents, and fans embraced.

Overall, West High has had a pretty good year in athletics. The Trojans program has won state championships in volleyball and girls basketball and the boys basketball team begins play at the state finals beginning this Friday.

“We went from volleyball champions to girls state champions, now we need boys basketball to be state champions,” Shelly Stumpf said. “Spread the love.”

Putting a little pressure on them, aren’t you Shelly?

“They need it.”

That’s the attitude of West High this season. And look what’s happened. Two state titles and perhaps one more on the horizon.

“We lost last year in the state championship, and that was hard,” junior Ally Disterhoft said. “But we fought back and stuck it through.”
