Blue springs south Girls Basketball wrapped up their season Monday falling to Truman in the first round of the district tournament 56-51. The Lady Jags spent most of the season ranked in class 5 top 10 teams in the state.

“I think the season went very good and I am so proud of what we accomplished but it definitely didn’t end how we all wanted,” says captain Elizabeth Ernsting.

The girls finished their regular season 19-7, tying the school record for girls’ basketball.

“None of us really knew we were on track to tie the record, nobody thought about it. We just went out and did our best. Lower told us we did after our last game and it was pretty special, seeing how hard we had worked had paid off,” says captain Sophia Lopez.

Coach Kory Lower was very proud of what his team accomplished this season.

“It’s hard to be upset. I wish we could’ve finished this one out differently but I’m very proud of them,” says Lower.

Seniors Elizabeth Ernsting, Sophia Lopez and Aniah Banful will all be graduating this year ending their run with the lady Jags.

“This season was so special to me. Not just because it was my senior year but because we accomplished so much this year and did things that hadn’t been done in a long time at south. We made it to every championship game in all 3 tournaments we played in and even won one. I’m so proud of this team, and I can’t wait to come back and watch them next year because they are going to be so good again.” says Lopez
