Lady Aztecs 54 Lady Warriors 49
The Corona del Sol Lady Aztecs used their superior height, speed and skill to destroy their first three victims in blow-out games, but were pressed to secure their Winslow Winter Classic Championship with a 54-49 win over the scrappy, never say die Tuba City Lady Warriors on Saturday.
Corona has three girls over six feet tall and six who stand 5' 10" or better. They were, amazingly, one of the quickest teams in the tournament as well. The Lady Aztecs breezed past Hopi 86-33, Page 52-35 and Desert Vista 56-35 before being tested by the defending Arizona State 3A Champion Tuba City Lady Warriors.

Tuba City had three players in double figures led by Nicole Tsingine with 14 points. Sharlimar Navajo with 11 points and Amy North with 10 were also in double digits.
Tuba City earned its way into the finals with victories over Coconino 52-37, Pinon 47-38, Gilbert Highlands 55-42 and Window Rock 65-56.
