The Cheyenne East girls basketball team had all the tools to win another state title and those tools were sharp as they upended Cody 51-41 to win the 4A title on Saturday in Casper. Boden Liljedahl is a superb all-around athlete and went 5-8 from the field including a trifecta of 3 pointers. Jordan Jones, who started her prep career at Cheyenne Central had 16 points and was named the state Gatorade Player of the Year.

It wasn't easy to beat a pesky Cody team but East made plays when they had to. That's what championship teams are made of. Plus they went 28-0 this season.

We talked with Jones and Liljedahl as well as coach Eric Westling about that championship game and that championship feeling.
