The Uniontown Eagles traveled to Yates Center to face the Saint Mary’s Colgan Panthers in the second round of Sub-State. The team fought hard, but were defeated by the Panthers.
Danielle Howard scored 17 points and had 9 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals. She was hurt late in the game so we wish her a speedy recovery. Karleigh Schoenberger had 12 points and 4 rebounds. Alie Fuhrman had 4 rebounds and 3 assists. Gwenyth Fry had 9 rebounds. Sammie Hampton scored 6 points and had 3 assists.
Coach Miller said, “We fought the good fight, but we could not overcome the hole we were in. The better team won tonight. Looking back, it is exciting to see the growth of this team over the last 3 years. We were 4-17 in 2018, 11-10 in 2019, and we finished this season 16-6. It is always hard to see our seniors graduate, and it can be difficult to fill the void they leave behind. However, we will continue to develop our athletes so they can be ready to rise to the occasion. The 2020-21 basketball season starts tomorrow for our Lady Eagle basketball program.”
AUTHOR’S NOTE: This was an amazing season for the Lady Eagles. Our final record is 16-6 overall and 9-2 in the league. We finished in the league sitting 2nd, just behind Saint Paul. I want to personally thank anyone who supports the Eagles by going to games or simply reading these articles. As a manager, it always makes me smile to see people supporting the team even if they have no relation to any players or coaches. Even people from other schools support our teams (an example of this would be Pleasanton in tonight’s matchup; thanks, P-Town!) I guess I have a couple more articles to write for the Varsity boys if they win against Northeast Arma tomorrow night, but this is it for the girls. I’ve loved every second of this season. Thank you.
