Clear out a spot in the trophy case – the Curtis High boys basketball team is bringing home a state title.
A sizeable crowd made the trek from University Place to watch their high school outlast previously undefeated Jackson 60-56 in the Class 4A state title game at the Tacoma Dome late Saturday evening.
With a win, Tim Kelly became the first coach to win large-school classification state titles at two different schools.
Kelly won back-to-back state titles at Lincoln in 2001 and 2002. His Vikings finished as runner-ups to state champion Gonzaga in 2011.
