KMS Athletic Director Todd Winebarger put on the event which featured eight regional teams competing for the championship. Lake Havasu's Thunderbolt Middle School and Needles, Calif., played for the title, with Needles winning 50 to 30. Two local teams, Kingman Academy of Learning and White Cliffs Middle Schools, battled it out for third place. The game went into overtime and neither team wanted to give an inch, but KAOL's Coyotes emerged victorious in the end 48-47.
