Monday evening Central School’s 5th and 6th grade girls’ basketball team were presented with a championship trophy. Last year the girls did not fair well on the court. With hard work, determination, and some mighty good coaching, the girls finished this year’s season 9-1.
The girls traveled over to Prairie View Academy on Jan 21st to compete in the 5/6 MAIS Girls Championship tournament. They came in as the #2 seed and beat Tensas academy by 1pt to advance to the finals. They won against Briarfield Academy coming out on top by 8pts.
If you had the opportunity to watch the girls play, you would have seen how much love they have for the game and for each other. They have made Coach Layne Huckabay, Coach Bubba Bowden, Central School, and Pioneer Nation very proud. We are looking forward to many more Championships from this group of girls.
