They’ll need to play a disciplined game, capitalize on scoring opportunities, and minimize turnovers to secure their first ever Division I state championship title.

Wildcats Aim for Redemption and State Title Glory

The St. Ignatius Wildcats will be looking to learn from their previous meeting with Centerville and make the necessary adjustments. They’ll need a strong defensive effort to slow down the Elks’ offense and utilize their own offensive firepower to overwhelm Centerville.


This game promises to be a rematch for the ages. Centerville’s experience from the earlier victory gives them a slight psychological edge. However, St. Ignatius’ overall dominance, strong record, and hunger for redemption can’t be ignored. Expect a close, high-scoring game that could go down to the wire. While Centerville is a dangerous team, St. Ignatius’ talent and motivation might be the deciding factor. Look for the Wildcats to claim the Division I state championship title, but Centerville has the potential to pull off another upset.
