The Canandaigua Braves’ incredible run ended Saturday night at Hudson Valley Community College with a 61-51 loss to the Walter Panas Panthers in the New York State Class A Final.

Canandaigua fell into a deep hole and faced a 25-point deficit at halftime. The Braves tried to fight back in the second half as they outscored Walter Panas 39-24, but it wasn’t enough.

Mya Herman led the Braves with 22 points. Eily Huber scored 10, Julia Geitner added 9, and Kyleigh Chapman chipped in 8.

Canandaigua finished the season with a 21-6 record and secured their first sectional title since 2009.
