Just another plaque that’s going to be added to the shelf.

The Lady Chiefs took the Ozark Conference championship October 1st, as they beat one of the inner-city rivals, Springfield Catholic. Going into the conference tournament, Kickapoo was 7-2 and came out 11-2.

The Lady Chiefs got the victory 5-1 against Central in round one of the tournament and advanced to the next round against Glendale in which they won 5-0. Heading into the third round against Waynesville, the Lady Chiefs came ready to rally and won 5-0. As the Chiefs advanced they ended up playing the Irish of Springfield Catholic in the championship. The hard fought battle between both schools fell in the favor of the Chiefs.

“I’m glad we could face Catholic because they always are really competitive. It’s also really exciting that we were able to win conference because I feel like we deserve it. We have put in so much time and work to get to this point,” sophomore, Brynley Brotherton said.
