At the time of writing this article, the Dayton Girls basketball team is really on a roll. After beating Calvary Christian 61-8 at home to clinch at least a share of the Division III NKAC Championship, they can clinch it outright tonight. This is the first time in 20 years they have clinched the conference championship.
First year Coach Steve Hunt has done a great job of taking the team to the next level by getting them to believe in themselves. If this year is an indication of what’s to come, the future looks bright for Lady Devil Basketball. With balanced scoring, the 15 – 8 team is led by Mallory Kubala, Megan Downard, Reba Sanders and Grace Workman.
Dayton will host Bellevue in their conference finale on February 9 in a game that will be held for a great cause, as it will be Cancer Awareness Night for the two river city rivals. All proceeds from the game will benefit Danielle Duke, who is bravely battling brain cancer.
