Cheyenne East met Southeast Wyoming rival Laramie for the 4A Boys State Championship on Saturday in Laramie in what turned out to be a competitive game. These two teams just met in the 4A East Regional semi-finals last week; a game that East won 56-41. For all the marbles, Cheyenne East prevailed again on Saturday night 68-59 to win their first state title since 2006.

The Thunderbirds had 4 guys in double figures led by Garet Schlabs with 18, Drew Jackson tossed in 17, Nathan Mirich had 14 and Camden Hayes chipped in a dozen. Schlabs was particularly effective going 7-11 from the field. East shot a remarkable 60% from the floor in the 2nd half. Laramie got an amazing effort from Levi Brown who was 9-18 from the floor and finished with 26 points. Neil Summers, the 6-7 sophomore had 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Cheyenne East finished the season 24-3 while Laramie was making their first appearance in the 4A championship game since 2011 and their first state tournament appearance since 2016. The Plainsmen wrapped things up at 15-14.
