The Eagles hosted St. Elizabeth on Thursday evening, coming up short in another close game 59-54. Senior Trenton Roney topped the scoring with 18 points and senior Chase Schupp just behind him with 17 points.

The Southern Boone Classic basketball tournament began on Monday with the Eagles facing Warrenton in their first match. They will also face Boonville and Harrisonburg later in the week.
