The Lady Eagles participated in the Purple and Gold Tournament on December 4-9.  The Ladies had a 1-2 record and ended the tournament in fifth place.

They began the tournament on Tuesday, December 5, facing off against Stockton. The first quarter was a close matchup between the two teams with a score of 10-11. However, the second quarter was a struggle for the Eagles who scored 13 points to Stockton’s 24. The Eagles returned after halftime and gave a better performance scoring 11 and holding Stockton to 9. The fourth quarter again was close with a score of 13-17. At the final buzzer the score board read 47-61.

The top scorer of the night’s game was Janae Huxman who scored 15 points.

Their second game was on Friday, December 8, against Ness City. In the first quarter Trego came out strong and scored 23 points to Ness City’s 7. The second quarter was a little different though with Trego scoring 12 and Ness city scoring 9. Trego returned after half time putting up a score of 15 and holding Ness City to 6. Trego blew away Ness City in the fourth quarter with scoring 8 and holding Ness City to 2. The final score was 58-24.

Lili Shubert led the team in points by putting 19 on the scoreboard.

After winning Friday, the Lady Eagles played their last game on Saturday for fifth place against LaCrosse.  Trego came out strong in the first quarter and scored 16 points.  The second quarter was not high scoring, but the Ladies still maintained their lead and walked to the locker room with a 20-9 lead.  LaCrosse came back and had a stronger second half, but it still was not enough to shut down Trego who still out-scored the Leopards 32-28, making the final score 52-37.

Shubert, who once again led the team in points with 17, admitted that the toughest game was against Stockton.  “We need to work on taking care of the ball and not having as many turnovers.” However, the team “stayed focused by believing that we could win,” stated Shubert.
