Brentwood Academy took control of the game early and went on to defeat cold-shooting Briarcrest, 63-41 Saturday in the BlueCross Division 2-AA girls state championship game at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena.

The Eagles used a 10-0 run late in the first quarter to built a double-digit lead and extended their advantage to 32-16 at halftime. The Saints, meanwhile, were struggling from the field, shooting just 28 percent in the first two quarters.

Brentwood Academy finishes 29-1 and will take a 27-game winning streak into next season. Briarcrest, which was making its fourth straight appearance in the final four, ends the year 23-7.

Briarcrest (41) — Brynn Holden 10, Elise Holden 11, Morgan Hunt 2, Tatiana Love 4, Kathryn Newman 4, Savanna Owens 6, Alyiah Wells 4.
Brentwood Aca. (63) — S. Harvey 17, C. Mallory 3, K. Stockhoff 6, M. Wilson 10, L. McAvoy 19, A. Billington 6, M. Bussard 2.
