The Woodville Lady Eagles seventh grade travelled to Kountze last Saturday to play in the 20-AA District Tournament. The Lady Eagles were the second seed from their zone behind the Corrigan-Camden Lady Bulldogs. The Lady Eagles faced Deweyville in the opening round and swept them in two games. The win advanced Woodville to the semi-finals against Hemphill. The Lady Hornets took the Lady Eagles to three games, but Woodville was able to advance to the finals against Corrigan. The Lady Bulldogs defeated Woodville twice in the season. This time, the lady Eagles were victorious winning the District Championship Banner. Seventh grader Malaysia Williams commented on the season. "We've had our ups and downs this season, but we pushed through." The seventh grade B-team finished 6-0 on the season.
Coach Sherry Ivey was impressed how the girls have improved on basic skills and overall knowledge of the game. "My team has become more confident in their abilities. They have improved tremendously in playing the game and not overthinking." The Lady Eagles finished the season at 9-2 and 7-2 in district. Earlier this season, Woodville won the Huntington Tournament for the other two victories. The Lady Eagles will host the Huntington Lady Red Devils in basketball on Thursday.
