On Thursday February 4 the night had come where the Toledo Indians would have to part with their seniors. For the senior night game Toledo took to the court against the Adna Pirates.
"The Senior night game vs. Adna was a difficult challenge but the group of Seniors competed throughout the game. Adna came away with the win but our Seniors battled hard and had a great 4th quarter led by Courtney Moore. Courtney had 6 points, 2 rebounds and 2 steals for the game. Her hustle and relentless effort was a great way to finish her last home game." Coach JB Ewers commented after the game.
Even though the Indians lost 53-30 the outlook on the overall was very positive.
"This was a great season for us. We had our best season since 2010 with 9 wins overall. Our Seniors were the key to this accomplishment. The Seniors led us through some early season adversity when we started 1-4. Haley Tauscher, Courtney Moore, Josie Bowen & Yvette Arroyo showed great leadership skills and played their best basketball in the month of January. We had a 6-4 record in the month of January and qualified for the District Tournament for the 2nd consecutive year. I am very proud of this Senior group, they are very special!" Coach Ewers said.
