Midway through a week-long trip for conference basketball action, the Cordova Lady Wolverines picked up a pair of wins. On Feb.16, they topped Tok 37-23. The next day, they defeated Effie Kokrine in Fairbanks 43-27.

Prior to that, Cordova lost a pair of games to Glennallen on Feb. 14 and 15 by scores of 48-13 and 31-17.

Following a pair of losses to Nenana on Feb. 18 and 19 by scores of 45-24 and 43-25, they returned home on the ferry late Sunday, Feb. 20.

“We may not have had all the wins we wanted,” coach Stacie Chappell said, “but individually and as a team we had many small victories. The team is coming together supporting each other, and Coach Goss and I are very proud of the girls.”

“Our seniors are great role models for the younger players,” Chappell added. “With no games last season, we are starting from the ground up. Working as a team Cordova can expect to see competitive growth from our Lady Wolverines.”

Cordova will close out regular season play with a pair of conference games versus SuValley at home on Feb. 23 and 24. 

They then have a 13-day break before heading back to Tok for the Conference Playoffs on March 10-12.
