For the 3rd straight year, Southeast played Upton for the 1A State Championship with the schools splitting their first two title meetings. The 3rd edition was a close game start to finish in Casper and Southeast pulled it out 45-40. The Cyclones were solid at the free throw line as Kaycee Kosmicki buried 6 of them in the last half-minute. Southeast made more free throws than Upton attempted and the Cyclones got 13 points each from Kosmicki and Sasha Haines. Baylie Booth had 12 with a trio of 3-pointers.

Upton fought hard to the end and overcame a rough 1st half in terms of shooting the basketball. The Bobcats were far more effective in the 2nd half and were led in scoring by 6-1 sophomore Bella Keller with 20 points. Sophie Louderback had 16 points on 6-12 from the field. Upton was the defending state champion and they finished this year at 24-3. Southeast has not missed the State Tournament since 2012 and has not has a losing season in girls' basketball since 2005. The Cyclones went 20-7 this year.
