Del Campo came into Earl Crabbe Gymnasium on the campus of Placer High school on Saturday for a championship game against the host team and jumped to and early 10-2 lead. A lead they never gave up even though Placer was able to make a fourth quarter run the Hillman couldn't get over the hump falling to Del Campo 78-66. Del Campo successfully defended their 2011 championship.

Isaiah Pineiro gave everything he had in the contest but Del Campo is a well balanced scoring team with to many weapon. Many of the Hillman players played well including Peter Kean as well as McNamara who fouled out of the game.

The last time Placer won the Kendall Arnett was in 2004.
