The following is a gallery of images from the 2009 Arizona State 3A boys and girls championship games held at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale. A number of reservation area teams made it to the big show, and the Monument Valley Lady Mustangs won the 3A girls championship. The Navajo Hopi Observer proudly honors the achievements of these teams with this photo gallery and a full-color center spread in the March 11 issue. Congratulations go out to all the teams.
