The Kings scored the first 11 points of the game, but Harpursville rallied and BK trailed by one at the half. However, Kearney closed the third quarter with a 14-7 run and led 37-33 with eight minutes to play.
The fourth period began with the Kings scoring six in a row, including two fast break baskets from Gausney-Jones. Kearney's lead ballooned to 13 at 51-38 and they were never threatened again.
It's the first state title for the Kearney girls. BK's boys team also won a state championship Sunday, making Kearney the first Section V school to win both finals in the same season. The Kings are the first school anywhere in New York to win both since 1981.
