DES MOINES, IA -- Central Lyon's first appearance at the Iowa Girls Basketball State Tournament will be tough to top in years to come.
Central Lyon survived a furious Newell-Fonda rally in the Class 1A State Championship game, winning 63-61 when Renee Maneman's halfcourt shot fell short.
Central Lyon had led by 15 with just over seven minutes to play in the fourth quarter. Newell-Fonda went on a 15-1 run and twice pulled to within a point.
Kori Schulte was Central Lyon's top scorer with 15 points. Siblings Lexi and Kelsey Ackerman added 12 and 11 points.
