One year after being named co-champions with South County High School, the Centreville Wildcats took the Virginia Class 6 Boys State Championship at Centreville High School on Feb. 20. The Wildcats came in with only two losses during the season, one to Hayfield who they defeated 64-55 in the state semi final game on Feb. 17 and Paul VI on Jan. 8. The Wildcats opponent for the Class 6 championship was previously undefeated Potomac, who advanced to the final by beating Landstown 79-73. After Potomac tied the game late in the second half, Centreville would pull away in the closing minutes of the game and win 63-49.
