The Craw-Kan "Your Community Technology Partner" Team of the Week from the Southeast Kansas area is the Girard Lady Trojans Basketball team for winning their third consecutive Wilson County Classic Title in Fredonia on Saturday.
The Trojans, led by head coach Brad Herlocker, won in convincing fashion on Saturday by defeating Cherryvale, 60-34. Girard was led by senior all-state guard Sydnee Crain who had 85 points over three tournament games that put her over 1,000 in her four-year career as a Trojan. Crain paced the Trojans with 27 points in the championship. Jacey Murphy and Jaada Valley also had big tourneys for Girard as they were named to the Wilson County Class All-Tournament Team. The Tournament also honored an All-Academic team in which Gabbi Sands and Jordanne Freguson were both named to. Girard knocked off Fredonia in the first round and Leon-Bluestem in the semifinals before the championship.
The Trojans, who won the 4A-II state championship last March, improved to 7-3 on the season and are ranked eighth in the latest KBCA Poll released on Monday. Girard will be back in action on Tuesday against Baxter at home.
