The Lady Pirates basketball team won their Region 16 title in a contest against the Lady Archers of St. Louis Community College in Sedalia on March 4. The score was 77-64. “I’m so proud of these girls and their determination to reach their goal of a region title,” Lady Pirates’ Head Coach Jenni Croy said. “They’ve really come together in the most important part of the season.”
The Lady Pirates’ win was their ninth in a row, a streak dating back to January. The NCMC women are now 16-12 overall. This is the first time since 2007 that the Lady Pirates have won their regional title, and also the first for Croy as head coach. She was the assistant coach when the Lady Pirates last took the title.
The team will now face the Lady Greyhounds from Mid South Community College of West Memphis, Arkansas. The Ketcham Community Center at NCMC will host this District Championship game which is scheduled for Saturday, March 8.
