The Blanchard Lady Lions extended the streak of Blanchard basketball teams winning the Academic State Championship to 3 straight years with their Class 4A Academic State Championship for the 2018-2019 school year. The boys had won the previous two seasons. Blanchard was recognized for their accomplishment during Championship Saturday at halftime of the Class 2A Girls Championship game at the Jim Norick Arena, or better known in the basketball world as “The Big House”. The Lady Lions took care of business on the court this season falling one game short of the state tournament, but their team GPA of 3.93 on a 4.0 scale allowed them to achieve championship status in the classroom. Congratulations to the Lady Lions!
