Most teams are in trouble when the captain and four-year starter at point guard goes down with a season-ending knee injury to begin the second game of the season. Not Gilbert Christian. The Knights plugged in a freshman, played defense, rediscovered their footing a few times along the way, and staged a couple bigtime comebacks in the state tournament to win the Div. IV state championship and second title in four years. Freshman Lauryn Satterwhite became the team’s point guard after Colleen Young suffered torn ligaments during the Queen Creek tournament to begin the season, and Meg van Rijn, Alyssa Elias and Cassidy Curtner rallied the girls. All five of the team’s losses came against teams in higher divisions, and the Knights used a 13-2 run to end the game and erase a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat St. David, 32-30, and win the championship.
