Moments after the final buzzer sounded, the players rushed the floor, and Coach Craig and Assistant Coach Chip High raised their arms in victory.

Many tears were shed, some for joy and others in sadness.

"This means a lot to me and the other three seniors ... Eve, Kati and Tayler," said Kennedy. "We've been with him for four years and that's hard as it is, and then trying to make it here was a big accomplishment.

"So we're really excited, but we're also sad it's over," Kennedy added.

For High, who coached at Choctawhatchee High for more than 20 years, and has been assisting Craig the last eight or nine, this was his first state title victory. Standing outside the center, High said he made it to the Final Four once, but didn't make it past the first round.
