River Hill senior forward Cari Haas enjoyed one of the finest quarters of her career when it counted the most Saturday night, scoring 13 of her 15 points in the fourth quarter as the No. 3 Hawks (28-0) won their first Class 3A state title with a 51-46 win over Western.

Haas, a two-year captain, helped the Hawks come back from a 39-34 deficit midway through the fourth quarter. She scored on a layup, a jumper and a three-pointer to give the team the lead for good, and then hit four free throws to help seal the win. She also contributed 10 points in the Hawks' 54-44 win over Urbana in Thursday's state semifinal game.

For the season, Haas averaged 11 points, 2.5 rebounds and two assists per game. She shot 90 percent from the foul line - including a 6-for-6 effort in the championship game.

Others considered: Ariel Blackwell, Milford Mill, basketball; Sheree Ledbetter, Southside, basketball; Akeema Richards, Western, basketball.
