Paonia is now 15-3 overall and 8-0 in league play. The Lady Eagles wrapped up the league schedule Tuesday night at Hotchkiss. While scores weren't available at press time, an unlikely loss for the Lady Eagles at Hotchkiss would not alter Paonia's league standings. The 2A District 5 tournament opens Tuesday, Feb. 26. Paonia will receive a first-round bye. Pairings for quarterfinal (first-round pigtail) games will be announced this weekend.
District semifinals are scheduled for March 1 and 2, at Paonia.blog comments powered by Disqus
