In the championship game Lincoln fell to Warsaw Edgewood by a score of 46-35. Edgewood held a 10 point advantage, 26-16, at halftime. Lincoln made some great defensive adjustments at the break and held the Tigers to only 2 points in the third quarter.  With almost 5 minutes left in the game the Red Storm would take a 33-30 lead, but the full court press proved to be too much as Plymouth fell to the rival Tigers.
