No. 4 Kentridge earned a ticket to this week's elite eight Class 4A state tournament after rallying to defeat No. 7 Arlington 65-61 in a regional boys basketball game last Friday at Kent-Meridian High School.

Keasean Kelly had 17 points, Jawan Stepney scored 14 points and Hussayn Ford added 10 points for the Chargers (25-1).

Students flooded the court when the clock hit zero to celebrate with the team, hoisting players into the air and grabbing photos with the victors.

The Chargers secured a second seed in the Hardwood Classic, and play their first around against Garfield on Thursday.
