Eastwood 5-foot-8 junior guard Aubrey Haas needed eight points to reach 1,000 for her career, and she got it during the Eagles’ 67-51 sectional final victory over Evergreen. Haas finished the game with 17 points, four rebounds, three assists and five steals. 

“For a junior to get 1,000 points is pretty special,” Eastwood coach Nick Schmeltz said. “Aubrey has started and played in every game from her freshman year to her junior year now (70 games), but you’ve still got to be able to score some points to do that and to do it in three years is pretty special. She is a complete player and can score in a multitude of ways. What may be most impressive though, is her ability to defend and still commit to being a defensive stopper.

“Haas will get a chance to go after the career scoring record next year (1,572 points held by 2020 graduate Jamie Schmeltz), but I know if you asked Aubrey she would say the most important thing going forward is the team winning and doing whatever it takes to make that happen.”

In the win over Evergreen, Eastwood was led by 5-5 junior guard Makenna Souder, who had 19 points, five rebounds, three assists and five steals. 

The Eagles (18-5) were to play in the Division III district semifinal Thursday night against Delta at Anthony Wayne.  The district championship was Saturday against the Elmwood-Swanton winner.

The only other team from the Eastern Maumee Bay Community to reach the district tournament was Northern Buckeye Conference co-champion Woodmore (22-2, 12-2). The Wildcats, which shared the league title with Elmwood (19-3, 12-2), faced Old Fort in a Division IV district semifinal at Fostoria Thursday. The D-IV district championship was Saturday against the Toledo Christian-New Riegel winner. The Wildcats defeated Emmanuel Christian 73-17 and Arcadia 50-38 to reach the district tournament.
