OLATHE, Colo. - (KKCO) After an impressive perfect season to win the state championship in 2008 the Olathe Pirates haven't slowed down a bit in 2009 as they enter the 2009 2A State Tournament with a perfect 10-0 record.

Even though the Pirates are the defending state champions and haven't lost a game since the 2007 playoffs, they enter the postseason as the number two seed in the tournament. Faith Christian High School has the number one seed, also with a 10-0 record.

For head coach Ryan Corn, the expectations have hit the ceiling. Anything less than a state championship this year would be a disappointment.
