The 2020-21 ECS Junior High Lady Buffalos took the MoKan Conference by storm this season! With a winning record of 11 and 0, the undefeated buffalos proved they are a force to be reckoned with! Their final conference game win, was in Kansas City at the Hy-Vee Sports Complex (also known to some as Kemper Arena) on Thursday evening, January 28, against Outreach Christian Academy. Their Coach, Pastor Craig Johnson started the season with a full beard, but as you can see in the photo, something has changed. He challenged the girls; “You place first, win all your games, I will shave off the beard.” Well, they took the challenge seriously; rebounding, stealing, three pointers, big defense, and hard work placed the Lady Buffalos in first place in MOKAN JH Conference Bracket. And, holding true to his word, Coach Johnson shaved the beard.
The Lady Buffalos’ drew a bye the first night of play in the MOKAN Tournament, on Thursday evening, February 4. They battle for 1st on Friday evening at the ECS Gym. Watch for updates to the tournament next week! Pictured in the front row; Aleta Lyness, Alayna Gingerich, Bennett Johnson, Sophia Bryson, Rowan Johnson, and Emersyn Johnson.
