Florence— The Florence Christian girls basketball team recently wrapped up a great season, which included a fourth straight region championship and a fourth straight tournament championship.

Head Coach Neil Minton says that he was impressed with his team this season.

“After losing five seniors (from last year) it says a lot about our kids and our program,” he says.

Minton said that defense was a big part of the Florence Christian girls’ successes this year.

Kylie Stewart really stepped up the last few games,” he says. “Corley Keefe and Kenzie Feagin continued to get a lot of focus and Kylie really stepped up.”

Keefe capped off her season by getting her 1000th point.

“I thought we really came together and accepted new roles,” says the head coach. “Our young girls really improved, and our leaders led. To many we overachieved, but I feel we came really close to reaching our potential and as a coach, that's a great feeling.”

Keefe finished out the season averaging 11.8 points a game. Stewart, a junior, averaged about 10.8 points a game. Feagin, a freshman, averaged nearly 12.8 points a game during the season.

Senior Brittany Williams averaged 7.8 points a game while Mary Margaret Sterling, a freshman, averaged 3.8 points a game.

Junior Emily Eason averaged 2.9 points a game for Florence Christian.

Williams led the team in rebounding, pulling down 7.7 boards a game. Stewart averaged 6.4 rebounds a game.

Junior Hilton Broach, Junior Kaia Thompson, and Senior Stephanie Dersch also contributed quality minutes for Florence Christian.

Florence Christian’s season ended in a semi final playoff loss to Northwood, falling by a score of 46-35. Florence Christian dropped Hammond 53-52 to get to the semi finals.
