Six state championship games.
The run means that Derby’s current seniors were sixth graders the last time the program had not played for a title.
It’s just the latest chapter of one of the best runs in 6A history. With its 62-27 win over Junction City, Derby became the third school in the classification to claim six or more consecutive trips to the title game. It joins Lawrence (10, 1986-1995) and Wichita Southeast (7, 1974-1980) in accomplishing the feat.
