The Uniontown Lady Eagles faced the Jayhawk-Linn Jayhawks in the first round of sub-state on Monday. We managed to beat the Jayhawks and will move on to the second round, in which we will face St. Mary’s Colgan on this Thursday.

The girls played incredibly well during this game and beat Jayhawk 58 to 47. Danielle Howard scored 34 points and was 14 for 16 on her free throws. She also had 8 rebounds, 2 assists, and 6 steals. Karleigh Schoenberger had 17 points and 6 rebounds. Sammie Hampton also had 6 rebounds, as well as 2 steals. Gwenyth Fry had 5 rebounds, Sivanah McAnulty had 4 rebounds, and Alie Fuhrman had 3 rebounds.

Coach Miller said of the game, “The girls’ hard work is paying off. They played hard, overcame adversity, and got the job done tonight. We will get back in the gym tomorrow and prepare to take on Saint Mary’s Colgan on Thursday night.”

The boys’ basketball will face the Pleasanton Blu-Jays at home in their first round of sub-state on Tuesday, March 3. We wish them the best of luck and hope to have a large turnout to the game!
