Savannah Deatherage stole an inbound pass with 13 seconds left, then made the game-winning layup to give Varnum a 39-36 victory over Hammon in the Class B title game.
 
Deatherage was fouled on the play and made the free throw. Hammon had one more chance to tie, but the 3-point attempt was off the mark.
 
The Lady Warriors had a 6 point lead early in the 4th quarter and tried to kill the clock in the final minutes, but the Lady Whippets forced multiple turnovers to eventually tie it with under a minute left.
 
It's Varnum's first state title since 2009.
