The Lady Eagles earned a trip to state and battled other top teams at the State Tournament in Hays on March 7-9.  The ladies fought valiantly and brought home fourth place.

The Lady Eagles started their state journey by defeating the Stanton County Trojans at Thursday’s playoff game, 49-33

The Eagles did not waste any time putting themselves in the lead during the first quarter, scoring 15 points to the Trojans’ 5.   The Eagles worked to keep the lead throughout the game, having an 11-point advantage at the half.  While the Trojans came back the second half and battled to tighten the point spread, they were unable to make it past the Eagles’ defense and the Eagles swooped in for the win.

After the win, the Eagles had to battle the Sterling Black Bears on Friday, March 8.  The Bears got a strong start in the scoring 15 points to the Eagles’ seven in the first quarter.  The Eagles gained 13 points in the second quarter but still trailed the Bears, 20-33.  The Eagles returned to the court after the half and continued to fight but fell to the Bears, 49-67.

The Eagles played in the third-fourth place game on Saturday, March 9.  They faced Wabaunsee and came out strong, getting a four-point lead.  However, in the second quarter, Wabaunsee was able to pull ahead of the Eagles, and at the half the score was 21-24.  Wabaunsee was able to maintain the lead throughout the second half and the final score was 36-49.

Congratulations to the Lady Eagles for an amazing and exciting season.

 

 

 

 

 

Lady Eagles state bound

Faces lit up with smiles, the Lady Eagles show the world that they are the 2019 Sub-State Champions.

The Lady Eagles had two obstacles to overcome in their journey to State competition, and they showed that a Devil and Cardinal can’t stand in the way of an Eagle.

The Lady Eagles first had to get past the Decatur Red Devils in Leoti on Friday, March 1.  The Eagles seemed to struggle with their shots during the first quarter, but they still held the Devils back 9-4.  The Eagles warmed-up and continued to widen the gap in the second quarter, ending it at 23-11, and Eagle fans’ tension began to ease.  The ladies went on to do what they do best and defeated Decatur 48-22.

With the first obstacle out of their way, the Lady Eagles turned their sights on Plainville. The team once again boarded a bus and returned to Leoti on March 2.  For the second time, the Ladies seemed to struggle in the first quarter, and Plainville got by them with a five-point lead.  However, Trego doesn’t like to be outdone and fought to put the Cardinals back in their place.  As the first half closed the score was 18-19.

The talons were out in the second half, and the Cardinals could not withstand the assault.  The Eagles pulled ahead with 16 points to the Cardinals’ six.  The Eagles were not about to let-up, however, and put up eight more points in the fourth quarter.  By the time the buzzer sounded, the Eagles had a 42-26 victory and a well-deserved trip to State.

Trego now moves on to the State tournament quarterfinals where they will face Stanton County on March 7 at 6:30 pm at Gross Memorial Coliseum and where a very proud community will be standing behind them.  Congratulations to the Lady Eagles.
