TAYLORSVILLE, Utah (ABC4 Sports) – Who needs experience to win a state title?
Led by freshman Emma Calvert, the Silver Wolves beat Bingham to claim the 6A high school girls basketball championship Saturday afternoon, 61-47.
Calvert had 21 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks, as Fremont outscored the Miners in the fourth quarter, 21-12 to pull away for the victory.
“That was our goal, that was our end goal,” Calvert said about winning the title. “I can’t believe we got it. I’m just so happy, I think we’re all happy that we got it. I’m just so proud of all of them.”
Maggie McCord scored 14 points to lead Bingham, and gave the Miners a 33-31 lead in the third quarter, but Fremont was able to come back and hold on.
Abby Broadbent scored 13 points, and made a big three-pointer with two minutes left to seal the deal for the Silver Wolves.
“I don’t even know, we just work so hard together,” said Broadbent. “I was just so overwhelmed. They just worked so hard from Day one until now, and it’s just so unreal. I can’t believe this.”
This is Fremont’s first state title since 2014.
