The Shiprock Lady Chiefs finished the regular season with perfect records this season – 26-0 overall and 6-0 in district 1-3A. They also won the district championship over Thoreau 70-21 on Feb. 28 and were given the No. 1 seed in Class 3A in the state championship tournament.
While those are all significant accomplishments, the Lady Chiefs have their eyes on the real prize – a state championship title.
"I didn't expect 26-0. Right now it just feels like we haven't really accomplished anything yet," Shiprock head coach Larenson Henderson said. "It's just about going to that tournament in Albuquerque and winning that one – the big one."
