City High girls basketball are conference champions. Again.

The Little Hawks clinched the MVC Mississippi Division on Wednesday night with a 60-54 win over Cedar Rapids Washington. The win marked Coach Bill McTaggert’s seventh conference title in as many years, a feat that proves to any doubters that City is still the dominant force in MVC girls basketball.

City started strong out of the gate, converting on fast breaks and letting stand out guard Rose Nkumu ’20 pick the Warriors apart as she drove to the basket. Nkumu had 16 points at halftime, a product of the Little Hawk’s aggressive strategy early. Wash mounted multiple runs in the third and fourth quarters, but clutch three point and free throw shooting ensured the game was never in doubt. City High did not trail in the game. Low stress, all business.

With another regular season in the books, the team can now turn it’s attention to the one goal that has eluded them of late: a State Title. The Little Hawks are the state’s number one seed overall, and have a very favorable path to Des Moines. The question is now is whether City’s core of juniors can do what last year’s team (headed by the state of Iowa’s all time leading, Ashley Joens) could not. City High’s last state title in girls basketball was in 2008.

The Little Hawks play Muscatine this Saturday in their first district game. Tipoff is at 7:00 p.m. at City High.
