Hopeful to finish off an undefeated season and come home with a state title, the moment didn’t come to pass for No. 3 Montrose (18-1). Behind Elijah Knudsen and a strong defense, No. 5 Mead (15-3) defeated the Indians 68-44 on Sunday in the 4A state title game.

There were plenty of moments when Montrose cut the deficit to single digits during Sunday’s contest. The Indians entered the second quarter with a 21-6 deficit, and stormed back to cut Mead’s lead to 27-23.
