Cordova’s Lady Wolverines finish the season on a high note, winning two and losing two at the Interior Conference Playoffs on March 10-12 in Tok.

CHS topped Tok and Effie Kokrine while falling to SuValley and Nenana in the three-day double-elimination playoff for berths at the State 2A tournament.

The loss to Nenana on Saturday, March 12, ended the bid for a trip to State, but CHS Coach Andrew Goss was happy with their effort.

“We played our best game of the season in that game,” Goss said. “We were ahead at half time and had lots of open shots in the second half that just wouldn’t fall.”

“That game was a reflection of the vast improvement made over the whole season and will be a great starting point for next year’s squad,” Goss said.

Lady Wolverines Amelia Hamberger and Jacey Pallas were named to the All-Conference team, and Alayna Goss received All-Conference Academic honors.
