The EC coaches said Batavia was a very talented team. EC guards Collom, Hadley, and Runyon have managed the opponents pressure all year long, the coaches added. Post players Hoskins, Maddy Frazer, and Cheyenne Reed have played aggressive, physical in the paint. Abby Reynolds and Ashlyn Tate have been challenged all year long to contribute in so many ways, the coaches said.

The seventh grade was defeated 34-16.

Makayla Seaman finished with 10 points for East Clinton while Hadlie Clark and Ashlyn Tate combined for six points.

The coaches said the team continues to work hard and develop and this is a hungry bunch of girls and continue to take the right steps, coach Angie Collom reported.
