The Latta Vikings softball team won the Class AA State Championship on Wednesday.

It was Latta's second softball championship in the past three seasons under head coach Stephanie Ard.

But it was the late former softball head coach Michael Rogers who was on the minds of the Latta players and current coaches.

Latta beat Buford 8-1 to sweep the best-of-three series.
