CENTRAL POINT—Chris Schmerbach has told his players throughout the season that he considers them a team of destiny.

After a 54-42 win over Marist Catholic on Friday night, the Comets are one step closer to fulfilling that prophecy—becoming league champions for the first time since 1990.

Senior Kiefer Edwards threw down another earth-shattering dunk and senior Mason Vranes was red-hot from three, and Crater celebrated its 11th straight win by cutting down the nets in front of its home fans.

The Comets close their regular season with a road date with Ashland and a home game against Thurston next week.
