DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Katie Landhuis scored 21 points and top-ranked MOC-Floyd Valley survived a subpar game by star Alexis Conaway and beat No. 6 Unity Christian 63-57 Saturday night to win the Class 3A state championship.

Kassidy DeJong led Unity Christian (22-5) with 25 points on 10-for-15 shooting. Sophomore Anna Kiel had 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.
