THE BEST OF THE BEST
In what was probably supposed to be a down year for Evans’ program, the Shamrocks (13-4 AIA) went on a postseason Cinderella run and reached the 3A state championship game for the fifth time in six years — despite being No. 17 in the final 3A regular-season rankings. YC beat the No. 16 seed in the play-in round, then the No. 3, No. 11 and No. 2 seeds in the tournament before finally falling to No. 5 Veritas Prep in the title game. This was Evans’ 11th year as YC’s coach.
