PORT LAVACA — The Ganado Indian Maidens proved to be too tough for the Lady Eagles on Tuesday night in the bi-district round of the playoffs. The Pettus girls ended their season on the wrong side of a 63-27 score.

“Unfortunately, we met up with Ganado at bi-district who comes out of a strong basketball district and who is a sound team to begin with. Scorers were spread out on our side as well with rebounding, but it just wasn’t enough to hold our own this year against the Maidens,” said head coach Sunny DeCamp.

The Lady Eagles made it to the playoffs this year, and the coach hopes that will start a trend for her charges.

“Hopefully, the Lady Eagles started a tradition in making a playoff spot and, with that tradition, will eventually come a desire and hunger for going further. As a coach, I couldn’t be more proud of how the girls worked throughout the season and the improvement they made,” said DeCamp.

The Lady Eagles will have a good nucleus of players returning next year. The Pettus girls lose two seniors with the rest of the squad back to take a shot at a district title and a deeper run in the postseason.

“It’s sad to see our two seniors, Tori Arrisola and Ryan Grayson, leave us, but I hope the rest of the girls will be as excited as I am already about the year to come,” DeCamp said.
