Two Minnesota high schools were crowned state champions in girls hockey on Saturday.

In Class A, the Blake School defeated St. Paul United 6-2. It was the second year in a row the two schools met in the championship game.

It's the third championship in the past four years for Blake and their seventh overall, which is a state record.

In Class 2A the Edina Hornets captured their first state championship with a 4-0 victory over Blaine.

Edina was the top seed in Class 2A and the team is loaded with talent – they have eight players committed to Division I universities.

Hornets head coach Sami Reber became the first female head coach to win a MSHSL 2A state hockey championship.
