A time to shine for Lady Jays

The Lady Jays have earned a playoff spot for the fifth straight year and the St. Edmund head coach Erica Zaunbrecher along with her sole senior Kinsley Marcantel hope their season can continue with several more wins.
“When the team makes the playoffs they can see all their hard work paid off,” Zaunbrecher said. “They can enjoy going into the post season knowing they earned it – it wasn’t handed to them.”
No. 11 St. Edmund (13-12) travels to No. 6 St. Martin’s (18-10) for a LHSAA Division IV regional round contest.
