Tough loss for Archers in region title game

Guard Dajae Williams and her fellow sophomores closed out
their STLCC careers with an 88-78 overtime loss to North
Central Missouri College in the Region XVI championship
game Feb. 28.

On Saturday night the Archers Womens Basketball team lost to North Central Missouri College at the Region XVI game. The team’s main goal this season was to make it to Nationals but unfortunately they fell short at the regional title game. The Archers fought hard to grasp the Region title but in the end fell 88-78 in overtime.  This lost ended their record breaking season of 24-7 and a 6 game winning streak. Sophomore guard Khalilah Morrow who played her last game for STLCC describes the season as “bittersweet.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                          A season filled with laughter and hard work is a season that the team will never forget. Sophomore Deborah Holcomb, who set a record this season for being the first Archer to make a 1,000 point career goal, says that she enjoyed playing with her team, “We have had so many fun moments together.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Saturday marked the last game for many players on the team, like Khalilah and Deborah. “I’m not sure where I will be playing next year yet, but I want to continue to play basketball until I can’t anymore,” says Morrow.                                                                                                                                                                            The saying all good things must come to an end is ever more prevalent now than ever before. Sophomores are preparing to move on and choose a University to attend next year while freshmen are looking forward to breaking more records next season under the leadership of head Coach Shelly Ethridge.
