Oakland Tech women’s basketball coach Leroy Hurt called his team’s opportunity to win a Division I state title “unprecedented” after he went on the road and defeated No. 1 St. Louis. Mary’s-Stockton on Tuesday night. Not even a herculean 47-point performance from the St. Mary, Jordan Lee, could cripple Oakland Tech.

However, while Hurt used the word “unprecedented” to describe Tech’s appearance in Sacramento, hardly anyone could call it all that surprising.

After all, Hurt’s Bulldogs had spent the previous three tournaments dominating the lower levels of competition.

Tech won Division IV state in 2019, clinched the NorCal Division II championship during the 2020 tournament, which was cut short due to the pandemic, and was crowned state champion in the 2022 Division III bracket.

After wrapping up his 2022 title, Hurt publicly stated his opinion that the Bulldogs should play in Division I, and then booked such perennial powers as Archbishop Mitty, Salesian, Carondelet, San Ramon Valley, Pinewood, and St. Louis. .

“We’ve worked all four years to get here,” said senior Sophia Askew-Gonçalves.
