Maidens fall to Lady Eagles in Area Round.
The 8-2A Haskell Maidens traveled to Post last Friday night to take on the 5-2A Seagraves Lady Eagles in the Area round of the 2019 playoffs. The Maidens were outscored by the Lady Eagles 26-21 the first half and fell short in the end 45-38. Haskell finishes the season with a 29-3 overall record.
The Maidens were led offensively by Junior Landry Hanson who finished with a game high 12 points. Other leading scorers on the night were Delaney Hanson with 7 points, CEra Taylor 7, Emma Roewe 6, Melody Martinez 2, and Taylor Manske 2. Leading the team in assists was Martinez with 2 and D Hanson 1.
Haskell was (6-20) 30% from 2FG, (3-16) 19% from 3FG, (9-36) 25% from FG, and (17-22) 77% from FT. Offensively, we just did not shoot well throughout the game and it made it really tough for us to overcome their lead, head coach Blake Eddleman said.
Seagraves was (10-24) 42% from 2FG, (4-22) 18% from 3FG, (14-46) 31% from FG, and (13-23) 57% from FT. Defensively, we played alight for the most part. Unfortunately, we needed to play great on that end of the floor due to our shots not falling like they normally do, Eddleman said.
The Maidens won the rebound battle over the Lady Eagles 37-28. D Hanson led the team in rebounds with 11 followed by Roewe with 9, L Hanson 5, C Taylor 5, and Martinez 3. Leading the team in steals was L Hanson with 2, Martinez 2, D Hanson 1, Roewe 1, and C Taylor 1.
Overall, I was very disappointed in the outcome of the game and the fact that I could not get this special group of girls back to the Regional Tournament. I wanted it so bad for them, their parents, and our fans. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be and that is how it goes sometimes in sports and in life.
However, we still have a lot to be thankful for and so many memories to cherish for the rest of our lives. We were Archer City Tournament Champs, Eula Tournament Champs, Five Peat District Champs, Bi-District Champs, undefeated at home, and we finished with an overall record of 29-3. I am so proud of everything the girls accomplished and overcome this year. I thought the girls did an excellent job representing our athletic program, school, community, and the Big Country. It was an honor and a blessing to be their head basketball coach.
On behalf of our team, I would like to thank all the fans for the awesome support throughout the 2018-2019 season. In addition, I would like to personally thank the parents, administrators, Denise Decker, Lee Decker, Holly Stocks, Rusty Stocks, Mik Everett, Eric Simmons, Lolo Martinez, and Shannon Eddleman for all of the support and help throughout the Fall, Summer, and Winter. Success is never an accident and takes a lot people working towards a common goal, Eddleman added.
