Nationals, Here We Come!

Well, the Lady Yotes are going to Nationals!  We’ve gone through many ups and downs this season, but we are all super excited to show off our stuff at the NAIA National Tournament in Sioux City, Iowa next week.

We finished first in the Cascade Conference, but lost in the Conference Tournament, which would have given us an automatic bid to Nationals.  Luckily, because of our ranking, we got a second chance to get ourselves a “golden ticket” and played in a National Tournament Opening Round game on our home court  We played Caroll College from Montana and won in three games!


It’s crazy to think that this season is almost over.  It’s been fun to spend so much time with girls that are not only my teammates – but my friends.  Practice after practice, long road trips, the wins and the losses.  We’re all in this together, and I’m excited to see what happens in Sioux City.
