Lady Jeeps eliminate Eastern in district final

Despite making a seventh consecutive district final appearance, the Eastern girls basketball team came up short in its bid for a Sweet 16 berth Thursday night during a 60-51 setback to top-seeded South Webster in a Division IV district championship contest at Jackson High School. The Lady Jeeps eliminated Eastern from the D-4 tournament for a second straight season and will advance to next week’s regional semifinal contest with Waterford at Jackson High School. Complete details of the Lady Eagles contest with South Webster will be available in the weekend sports edition of the Sunday Times-Sentinel. (Bryan Walters/OVP Sports)
