The Mayfield Trojans won the 2004, 2007 and now the 2011 5A State Championship in Girls Basketball. Tonight, the Trojans held their ring ceremony, the culmination of a long season of hard work and drive to the State Championship.
Senior Guard/Forward Elena Holguin said, "In the beginning, it's like oh we won, but you don't realize you won because it's such a big deal, but now it's finally hit me, that we are state champions, and I am just so grateful. It's the best feeling in the world." Head Coach George Maya, who has coached Mayfield to their last three state championships, "What made it so special was our seniors. They kept us together, and worked so hard, they were so dedicated and committed that we got on a roll, and just started playing well at the right time."
