It was supposed to be a coronation, but King's Fork would have none of it, and, they led powerhouse Monacan late in the 4A State Girls Basketball Championship in March.
But King's Fork didn't have the will, determination, and talent, of the nation's top recruit, Megan Walker, who found a way to score the would-be winning basket. But that alone didn't end it. King's Fork got possession with :00.3 on the clock, just enough time, by rule, to tip a pass towards the basket. The inbounds pass was barely caught, the ball sent into the net, and, for a split second, it looked like, from King's Fork's view, they had slayed the two-time defending champion Chiefs.
But the officials waved off the basket per rule, and the Chiefs survived their toughest, and most surprising, test en route to their three-peat.
