At Charlo on Senior Night, the Lady Vikings closed out their regular schedule in style against the visiting tough-as-nails Arlee Scarlets. The game would be a final test that would challenge their undefeated regular schedule slate, but Charlo proved to be up to the task and adjusted to the challenges that the Scarlets would throw their way.
The Lady Vikings seasoned seniors among the squad honored during the course of the evening included players Kaitlin Cox, Allie Delaney, Teaira Truman and Aubrey Doty. Injured senior Tyrah Hammond was also recognized as well as the conspicuous absence of Adriana Johnson, who would have been a senior playing with her teammates had she not succumbed to injuries sustained in an tragic traffic accident.
Both teams will now train their sights on the upcoming District 14C Tournament in Hot Springs, starting Thursday. Both the Lady Vikings as well as the Scarlets have drawn first-round byes. The Lady Vikings await the winner of fourth seed Noxon vs fifth seed Plains, while the Scarlets await the outcome of third seed Hot Springs vs. sixth seed St. Regis.
