MEDFORD, Ore. — At the beginning of the year, no one would have picked the Medford Mustangs to win a sixth-straight state championship, not even the Mustangs themselves.

But on Wednesday evening in Klamath Falls, the Mustangs proved all the naysayers wrong and completed the fabled six-peat. And they did it by coming together and choosing to be the best team they could possibly be.

"This team cares more about each other than any team I've ever been apart of," Mustangs Head Coach Nate Mayben said. "It's just a special group of guys. You know you get people with that kind of heart and passion for each other and the game, special things can happen and that's what happened."

Now their special season continues as they prepare to head to the regional tournament in Lewiston, Idaho. Their first game is set for 10 am on August 7th against the Alaskan State Champions.
