GARNER, N.C. (WTVD) -- Garner Magnet High School grabbed its first N.C. High School Athletic Association 4A softball state championship on Saturday.

The Trojans (28-2) won 12-1 against the Weddington Warriors in just five innings. The team completed a two-game sweep in the best-of-three series.

In game one, the Trojans won 3-1.

Before heading out to UNC-Greensboro, Garner was the top-ranked women's team and beat Apex Friendship in the fourth round to face off in the regional final against Wake Forest.

Garner won the first game against Wake Forest, but the 11-seed Cougars refused to go away quietly -- winning game 2 by a score of 5-1. In the rubber match on May 24, Garner came out on top in a hard-fought 10-inning marathon.
