The Fort Dale Lady Eagles ended their season with a 42-46 loss to Glenwood in the AISA State Basketball Final Four round.

Though they came up short of the championship, the Lady Eagles enjoyed a season record of 15 wins and four losses, placed first in their region, and won 51-37 over Springwood in the Elite Eight round.

High scorers for the two tournament games were Cahley Acreman with 12 points and 11 points and Anna Claire Thomas who scored five and 17 points.

When asked to reflect on the season, head coach Regina Parker replied, “I am very proud of my team this year on and off the court. We had exceptional leadership from our seniors this year. The team was a close family that played together and prayed together. They praised God in every win and in every loss… and for that they are champions to me.”

Seniors Acreman, Royal, and Kinley Woodard will represent Fort Dale at the AISA All-Star game on Feb. 18 at Crampton Bowl.
