The team began the season with three goals, winning 20 games and making a long playoff run.
“It’s been quite a while since the girls experienced a 22-win season,” said Coach David Carmichael.
Five stalwart seniors lead the team into the playoffs including Brittany Simpson, defensive specialist; Jennifer Elizardo, offensive and defensive spark plug; Bria Brown, veteran leader of the squad; Kitty Avery, leading scorer and rebounder; and Hannah Carmichael, assist leader and 3-point shooter.
Five sophomores and one lone freshman, Hannah Niemann rounded off the team. The sophomores included Taylor Perez, Jamie Wilson, Toni Martinez, Kasye McCool and Madalynn Nixon.
“The sophomores are hard workers and hustlers and the lone freshman performs at a high level during game-time action,” Carmichael said. “Their hard work is appreciated.”
The Lady Eagles’ playoff season began in Riviera with a match-up with the LaVilla Lady Cardinals on Feb. 14.
“The night belonged to Woodsboro,” Carmichael said.
The Lady Eagles showed their dominance early on both sides of the court, both offensively and defensively. At the end of the night, the Lady Eagles prevailed 52-34.
The Woodsboro girls entered the next round of the playoffs on Feb. 17 in the city of Spurs against the Lady Cowgirls of Mason at San Antonio Cole High School. The Lady Eagles were 21-10 on the season.
“Excitement filled the air in anticipation of another Lady Eagle win but the Lady Cowgirls were an outstanding team,” the coach said.
The Lady Eagles ended the season in San Antonio.
“Congratulations Lady Eagles on a great season, Carmichael said. “Thanks to the support of the fans this year. Thanks to the Lady Eagles for the excitement and joy you created in the Dome this year.”
