JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The dynasty continues for Ingomar.

Behind Lauren Thompson’s double-double the Lady Falcons rallied past Coahoma County 55-42 to claim the state girls Class 2A state championship on Friday afternoon at the Mississippi Coliseum.

It’s Ingomar’s second straight Mississippi High School Activities Association 2A state championship and ninth state title in school history.

Thompson would pour in a game-high 18 points and pull down 12 rebounds to lead the Lady Falcons and was named the game’s Most Valuable Player.

Gara Beth Self added 16 points for Ingomar and Carson Grisham chipped in seven points for the Lady Falcons (36-3).

After a back and forth first half, Ingomar didn’t take its first lead of the game until midway through the third quarter. A Carson Grisham lay-up put the Lady Falcons ahead good at 31-29.

Ingomar’s defense held Coahoma County to just 22 percent shooting from the floor in the second half.

Z’undrai Mabry and Geneva Walker each had 11 points each to lead Coahoma County (32-2).
