The Eastern Lady Eagles basketball team will open their season tonight (11/27) at home at 7:30pm against the sixth region’s preseason #1 team, Mercy. Three Eagles are set to open their senior campaign. Briana Mishler (IUPUI signee), Hunter Wright, and Breanna Anthony are looking forward to a tough test in their final home opener in an Eastern jersey. Mishler was noted as one of the top players in the region and is the leading scorer among the Eagle’s returning players.
The lady Eagles were pegged as the 4th best team in a very deep 7th region but return a strong core from last year’s team. In addition to those seniors the team features underclassmen Mikayla Kinnard who was noted as a player to watch in the Courier-Journal’s preseason coverage.
The girls start the season with a tough gauntlet as they will play Mercy, followed by Manual, Central, and Sacred Heart in the first two weeks of the year.
Come out and support the ladies tonight!
