The Lancers make their second consecutive trip to Akron and the final four. It is the fourth time in school history…winning the title in 1962, a semi-finalist in 1974 and last year’s state runner-up finish.

Price shared his thoughts with the Lima News after the win about returning to Akron for the Final Four –

“All of us who knew we were going to come back had that in our minds after that loss. We were so heartbroken. That’s what we worked toward for 365 days. We worked toward the goal of winning a state championship.’’
