It was Denver East's turn to celebrate.

A season ago the Angels watched the party. Eaglecrest stunned East in the 2013 title game.

"We could have won it last year," said senior Ronnie Harrell, "but my mom always tells me, if you don't do something right the first time she's going to make you go back and do it again."

This team only had one more chance though. It was the same roster that lost that title game, but this was their senior season.

"We all felt that if we would've come out of East with out a championship we wouldn't have felt accomplished," senior Dominique Collier told 9NEWS.

"I couldn't ask for a better ending, a story book ending especially doing it with the same group of guys we lost with. we've been through everything," said Harrell.

"Man, it just felt so good. My legs got week walking to the bench. I'm just so happy I'm coming [to CU next year] and we got the win," said Collier.

On his future home court, CU commit Dominique Collier won a title, and even got to show off a bit with a second half dunk.

"Everyone's been heckling me about missing dunks," said Collier laughing, "just to get one in the championship in Boulder where I'm going to be playing and shut everybody up. I got a dunk!"

The angels got their redemption, and more importantly the 11 state title in program history.
