Warriors News · McAuley Lady Warriors Win First Tournament in 12 Years

The McAuley Lady Warriors basketball team had a successful and exciting weekend!  The ladies traveled to Sarcoxie on Saturday to wrap up the Sarcoxie tournament after snow days the previous week forced the tournament to change schedule.  Game time was set for 3:00 pm on Saturday in Sarcoxie and the ladies would face the host team in the championship match up.  The score was close the entire game, but the ladies never gave up.  They had one goal and that was to win the tournament.  The final quarter was back and forth between Sarcoxie and McAuley, resulting in six different lead changes.  The Lady Warriors stayed strong and never gave up the fight.  Taylor Schiefelbein and Courtney Bates each scored at just the right time to give the Warriors the edge.  The final score was 44-42.  Courtney led McAuley with 15 points, and Dorothy Ostmeyer, Abby Schiefelbein and Becca Freitas each added 8 points for the Warriors.  This was the first “First Place” tournament win for McAuley in 12 years.
