The Kansas high school football season ended on Saturday with championships being decided in five classes.
In the 6A title game in Topeka, Shawnee Mission West surprised Hutchinson 19-14. West trailed 14-6 at halftime, but rallied behind the running of Brett Sterbach, who rushed for 273 yards.
The 5A championship game in Emporia was no contest, as Bishop Carroll completed a perfect season with a 60-21 thrashing of Bishop Miege. Miege, which made it to the title game with 5 losses, was never in the game and trailed 40-7 at halftime.
In Salina, Holton used a stifling defense to win the 4A championship, shutting out Eudora 21-0. Holton held Eudora to just 139 total yards and 6 first downs.
In a 3A battle of traditional powers at Hutchinson, Scott City trailed 21-0, but came back to pull out a 28-21 win over Silver Lake. It was Scott City's first title since winning the 4A championship in 1991.
Finally, in the 2-1A championship game in Hays, Meade won its fourth title by defeating defending champs Centralia, 28-25. The loss ended a 21 game winning streak for Centralia.
