THE THREE championship games produced the second-most lopsided composite margin of victory in the 37 years of the state tournament. Parkersburg South, Bridgeport and St. Joe (25-1) won their titles by a total of 82 points, an average margin of victory of 27.3 points.
The most lopsided set of title games in tournament history came in 1999. That year, Wheeling Park beat George Washington 69-35, Oak Glen won the Class AA title by beating Tolsia 67-33 and Mercer Christian beat Williamstown in Class A, 49-23, for a composite margin of victory of 96 points.
The smallest composite margin of victory came last year. Greenbrier East, Westside and St. Joe claimed championships in 2012 by a combined total of 16 points.

MIKI GLENN averaged a point per minute while leading Bridgeport to its first state championship.
Glenn, a Class AAA All-State selection last year before the Indians dropped to Class AA, tied Westside guard Hope Davis with a tournament-high average of 31.7 minutes per game.
Glenn led all players in scoring through three games, and finished with 95 points, an average of 31.7 per game.
She finished four points shy of the Class AA tournament record for points in a tournament, owned by Doddridge County's Susan Robinson and set in 1987.
It was one of the few scoring records Glenn did not break last week. She set a standard for points in a game with 40 against Nicholas County in the semifinals. She also established records for free throws made in a game (19) in the first round against Lincoln and free throws attempted in a game (23 vs. Lincoln).
Former Summers County standout and 2008 player of the year Jolysa Brown saw her records for free throws made and attempted in a tournament bested by Glenn as well. Glenn made 51-of-58 attempts.
Brown was 31-of-47 in the 2008 state tournament, when the Bobcats beat Lincoln for the state championship.

ST. JOSEPH'S fifth consecutive Class A state championship tied the record for most consecutive titles established by Class AA Summers County (2007-11). It also extended the streak of private school Class A championships to 10.
Williamstown, which won the title in 2003, was the last public school to win the Class A crown. In 37 years of the state tournament only eight public schools have claimed championships in the class: Fort Gay (1976), Montcalm ('80), Tyler County ('81), Van ('82), Doddridge County ('85), Athens ('86), Burch ('90) and Williamstown.
