Three Eureka Lady Tornadoes were named to the Tri-Valley League (TVL) 1st Team for TVL Lady Basketball.
This was such an incredible year for the Lady Tornado Basketball program. Had someone told me last summer we would beat three highly ranked teams, including a state final four team in 4A Clay Center, be undefeated TVL League Champions, Sub-state Runners Up in arguably the toughest sub-state in 3A, and have a record of 20-3, I would have told them they were crazy! After all, we lost three starters to graduation, had players move, and players just flat out quit. But, thank goodness, these 14 girls had other plans! They were incredibly motivated to become the best team in school history that played the best together!
