The number one team in the state in class 2A proved why they were ranked at the top tonight as Sumiton Christian won their second state title in a row over Ider 9-3.

Sumiton Christian junior Kamree Lay was awarded the tournament’s most valuable player award after going 4-4 at the plate with two RBI’s, and also holding Ider to 3 runs on the mound.
