“That was horrible,” Grovey said. “We had never been down that much. I think we were a little freaked out.”

Then the championship game was a back-and-forth affair until Grovey's back-to-back steals.

“The whole game, I was thinking it was way too close,” Grovey said. “We hadn't played a game like that, and we just had to find a way to get a lead. When I had those two steals and we had the momentum, that was my way of getting a lead and getting out of that situation.”

Now, Grovey will move on to her college career. She has signed to play for Tulsa, where she'll room with Midwest City standout and fellow Tulsa signee Ashley Clark, who is on The Oklahoman's Super 5 second team.

“I've been talking to Ashley Clark a lot,” Grovey said. “We keep talking about how excited we are and how we can't wait to get up there.”
