Lady Tigers Rack Up More Awards
The 2008-09 basketball season is complete, but the post season awards keep rolling in for the Scotland County Lady Tigers.
SCR-I finished atop the final rankings of area teams compiled by the Kirksville Daily Express newspaper. SCR-I, which finished the year 16-11, received 20 points in the final Top 5 Poll. Putnam County (18-7) was tied for second with Kirksville (12-14) followed by Knox County (14-12) and a fifth place tie between LaPlata (13-13) and Schuyler County (15-11).
The Daily Express All-Area Team named SCR-I’s Kaitlin Caldwell and Melissa Cotton to the honorable mention list. The duo received similar honors from the Quincy Herald-Whig newspaper.
Scotland County’s Jaryt Hunziker was named the Kirksville Daily Express girl’s Coach of the Year.
“I would like to thank all the girls for their hard work and dedication to the basketball program,” Hunziker said. “All the support from the parents and the community was greatly appreciated.”
