Lady Wolves place 2nd in Class 2, District 16 Tournament

The East Atchison Lady Wolves finished their 2018-19 season with a District loss to Mid-Buchanan Friday, February 22. The girls played tough, but ultimately lost the championship game 69-73. However, this was the first time the Lady Wolves have made it to a District championship since Fairfax and Tarkio combined their basketball teams, so the girls should be commended for having such a successful season, especially with a 24-3 overall record and an 11-2 275 Conference record! Pictured are team members, from left to right: front row – Kaely Kirwan, Jae Barnett, Morgan Parshall, Lily Graves, Mercedes Parshall, Chloe Bruns, Kinley Thornhill, Grace Martin, and Hannah Brown; and back row – Head Coach Dustin Barnes, Brynnan Poppa, Ella Rolf, Jaycee Graves, Cheyenne Gray, Jesse Graves, Kilea Cooper, Assistant Coach Madison Hagey, and Assistant Coach Casey Martin.
