Maddie Simon's high school basketball career ended as many had anticipated, with a state championship.  

The 6-2 Lincoln Pius X senior and Nebraska women's basketball recruit scored 18 points to lead the Thunderbolts to a 41-33 victory over Norris in the Class B Girls State Basketball championship Saturday afternoon at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

The championship is the first for Pius X (22-2), since 1992.

Simon and Kennady Sander were pivotal in the fourth quarter when things got tight.  Norris roared out to a 7-0 run to start, behind two baskets from McKenna Sullivan and took a 27-25 lead off a Dani Meierhenry three-pointer with 6:12 to play.

Sander then scored on the next Pius X possession to tie and Simon scored on a go-ahead layup with 5:10 left to regain the lead at 29-27.  

The 'Bolts regained a four-point lead, while the Titans missed two opportunities to close the cap from close range on one possession.  Then Simon scored on a layup to put Pius X ahead 35-29 with 1:36 remaining.

Norris closed the deficit to four at 37-33 on a basket from Shalena Brown with 29 seconds left.  Simon and Briahtia Sebek each hit two free throws to seal with the win.

Pius X led much of the game, including a 16-15 halftime lead before taking a 25-20 third quarter lead.

Sander added 13 points for Pius X.   Norris was led by Meierhenry and Brown, who each scored 9 points.
