The West Central Lady Trojans won their 4th sectional championship in the last 6 years by defeating DeMotte Covenant Christian, Pioneer, and Tri-County at the West Central Sectional. The Trojans’ season came to an end in the first round of the Caston Regional when they lost to Bowman Academy 49-41.
