The season has come to a close for the Chaparral women’s basketball team after a tight loss to Rock Valley in the Region IV Tournament Championship.
The game would decide who would move onto the National Junior College Athletic Association Division III National Tournament to be held at Rochester Community College.
It was the first time the Lady Chaps had played in the championship game since 2008.
After a hard-fought 61-57 victory against Joliet Junior College just a day earlier, the Chaps were hoping to be crowned regional champs.
Unfortunately, the Lady Chaps could not pull off the win.
Despite losing by as many as 20 points in the second half, the Chaps pulled within two of the Golden Eagles.
However, this was as close as the team got before falling to Rock Valley 54-50.
It was a solid season for the Lady Chaps. They finished with a record of 21-8 and will look to make improvements for next year.
