Derby High School is the lone AVCTL I school to have both of its boys and girls basketball teams still alive in this week’s Class 6A state basketball tournaments while the Hutchinson Salthawk boys and Maize South Mavericks boys basketball teams are both still alive in the Class 5A state tournament.
