By Todd Haynie

Thatcher, AZ—The Lady Monsters basketball team had their best year ever this season by finishing the regular season with a record of 32-7.

A win in the Region I playoff game qualified them for the National Junior College Athletic Association Tournament, March 17-22, in Salina, Kansas.

This will be Eastern?s first trip to a national tournament for the Women?s basketball program and the team?s strongest performance since the 2003-2004 year.

As they prepared to go to this year?s NJCAA National Tournament, EAC coach Ryan McAdams commented, ?We played 30 games to get here. I commend my kids for being resilient through it all. They found a way to win all year. They are a family.?

Congratulations to Shaunice Robinson, Shakita Cox, Danielle Loving, Lawre?ll Dobbins, Natalia Hausmann, Ebony Cooper, Chukwuma Chiamaka, Kamanyana Ange, Jada Harris, Pearl Paulo, Nicole Boatley, and Jazmin Horne for their hard work and a great season.
