The Seneca girls basketball team made a complete recovery this year, regrouping after their run to the state tournament last year.
How good was the rebuilt team? Real good. The Indians finished the season with 51-23 victory over the North Crawford Trojans. The Indians were 20-2 overall and 13-1 in conference play, tied with Ithaca for another conference championship.
Logan Lessard led the conference in scoring, averaging 13.8 points per game. The team has learned to play together over the course of the season, according to coach Kim Redman.
Against the Trojans, Alexis Payne led all scorers with 14 points, while senior guard Logan Lessard playing in the last regular season game of her career scored 13 points.
Both Brianna Brockway and Taylor Redman scored 10 points.
Seeded number one in the regional, the Indians began with Cassville on Tuesday night. If they beat the Comets, the Indians will face the winner of the Wauzeka-Steuben-DeSoto game on Friday, March 1. If Seneca can win that game, they would host the regional final on Saturday, March 2.
“We need to play hard and play well and see what happens,” coach Redman said. “I like being at home. It’s kind of nice.”
