Hi-Plains boys rally to claim 1A state title

By

LOVELAND – Claiming their third state title in nine years, the Hi-Plains boys beat Caliche 52-51 on Saturday night for the Class 1A championship.

In a matchup of teams that have won six of the past eight 1A state titles (Hi-Plains in 2006 and ’08 and Caliche from 2009-12), Hi-Plains (23-2) rallied in the fourth quarter after being down 39-35 after three. It was a game that went back and forth all night.

Avery Marzolf had a game-high 22 points for Hi-Plains, and Justin Miltenberger added 12 (including 7-of-10 from the free-throw line).

Caliche (23-3), which beat defending state champs McClave in Friday’s semifinal, was led by Mitch Davison’s 19 points.
