Today our Emmanuel Ladies Basketball Team defeated Southwestern Christian University out of Bethany Okla. by a score of 79-65 to take home the distinction of finishing third in the Nation at the NCCAA National Tournament.
In the closing ceremony Sophmore Timia Reynolds was recognized by being selected to the All National Tournament Team. Skye Rogers was selected on the Honorable Mention All American team and made the All American All Scholar Team. Elise Coberly was selected by the coaches as the Number One Player on the NCCAA All South Region Team and at the National Tournament received the distinguished First Team All American Plaque.
This was the ladies highest finish at the National Tournament in ten years. Last year they finished fifth but with a great group of underclass players returning next year plus a talented number of recruits coming in it appears the future looks bright for these ladies to continue their climb to the top! Go Lions!
