Lady Eagles eliminated from playoffs by Navajo
The Lady Eagles saw their season end on Thursday to the Navajo Lady Indians in the Regional Round of the playoffs. After defeating Hinton in the District Round to advance and gain their eighth victory of the year, their 62-32 loss to the Lady Indians brought their season record to 8-17.
“Despite the ending being disappointing, I am proud of all these girls,” stated Coach Hailey Simunek. “We all got better, including myself. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of girls.”
After falling behind early by eight, Hennessey was only able to collect three points in the second quarter, and Navajo extended their lead to 19. Unfortunately, the Lady Eagles weren’t able to narrow the gap from there, and they were eliminated from the playoffs.
