"It just feels so good", Coach Lee Green says after his team won their 20th game of the season and claimed their title of Regional Champs. This is the first regional championship win for the Marquette girls basketball team since 2012. Coach Green credits the Blue Crew and the fans for amping up the energy for the team. "We always play with a lot of energy, but the Blue Crew definitely helped."
The coaching staff and the girls set many goals at the start of the 2017-2018 season and with the 20 wins and a regional championship, they are checking them off. Coach Green says he feels blessed to have these girls in his life, "They are a great group of kids. We just don't want the season to end."
Marquette advances to meet Pleasant Plains at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 2A Riverton Sectional semifinals. Pleasant Plains beat Williamsville 55-46 to win the 2A Pleasant Plains Regional title. The Cardinals are ranked fifth in the latest Associated Press 2A state poll.
Congratulation to WBGZ's player of the game, Peyton Connors.
