CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Keaghan Ritchie scored 14 points to
lead Charleston Catholic to a 40-34 win over top-seeded St. Marys
on Saturday in the lowest-ever scoring Class A championship game.

Charleston Catholic (23-3) won its first title since winning
back-to-back championships in 2006 and 2007. The Irish had advanced to the championship game for the seventh time in eight seasons.

Ritchie's layup put Charleston Catholic ahead to stay, 33-32,
with 3:25 left. The Irish outscored St. Marys 9-4 to finish the
game.

Derek Renner led St. Marys (25-2) with 13 points while K.D.
Arnett had 11 rebounds.

It was the lowest scoring Class A title game under the current
three-class format that started in 1959. The previous low came in
1994 when Doddridge County beat Burch 42-41.
