Eagleville girls suffer a heartbreaking two-point loss in the quarterfinals of the Blue Cross Basketball Championships.
Midway defeated the Lady Eagles 53-51 after leading by double digits in the second half.
Coach Chris Lynch
Eagleville led by 11 early in the third quarter but several turnovers and a 10-0 run by Midway tightened the game from that point on. The Lady Eagles' Makayla Moates put up 22 points and 13 rebounds in the loss.
Eagleville finishes the season 22-10. The good news for Lady Eagles' fans is they're young, with only one senior on the team. The players vow to work hard to ensure it's not another 37-years before they return to the state tournament (their last appearance was in 1982).
