The Lady Eagles 3-on-3 basketball team took on all comers, including a men’s squad, to win its division at the July Madness 3 on 3 tournament in Sandy last Saturday.
The team of Rachel Perry, Rachael Mallon and Audrey Mallon combined to compete in three games at the annual tournament.
In the first game the Lady Eagles had to play a high school men’s team due to the lack of ladies teams.
The male team, V-Unit, defeated the Lady Eagles, and eventually made its way to the finals.
In the second game the Lady Eagles took on the Average Joes, which came with four players, and used this to their advantage by substituting constantly to beat the scorching weekend heat. Even though they led most of the game, in the end the Lady Eagles could not hold off the Average Joes.
In their final game, the Lady Eagles matched up against a squad from Sandy High School, and were able to prevail to claim tournament honors.
