Paris Lady Eagles’ Postseason Run & Season Comes to an End in Regional Tournament


BOONEVILLE– Cinderella’s magical run came to an end last week in the first round of the 3A Region 1 basketball tournament. After winning a district tournament championship, the Lady Eagles dropped their first-round regional game to Elkins.

The Paris appearance in this year’s regional was the second consecutive trip for the program in the last two seasons. Paris, who won a number one seed going into the regional, lost to the number four seed Lady Elks in the first round. The loss follows a 2023 first round regional loss as a number two seed to then number three seed Flippin.

Paris’s appearance in the regional was a tribute to a team that struggled to a 6-7 conference record in the regular season, although those losses were all by seven or fewer points. Paris played several games in approximately eight days to get to the regionals. The Lady Eagles’ appearance was the result of a team that refused to give up throughout the season.

Individual postseason honors should be announced soon, and Eagles fans are hoping to see Annabelle Perry named as All-State for her outstanding play throughout the 2023-24 season.

The loss to Elkins was also the final game for Paris senior Makalie Carter. Carter, known for her all-out effort on the court, played her last game the same way she did the past two years since her transfer from Cedarville. Carter played with great intensity and hustled on every play.

RNN Sports would like to congratulate Paris on their second consecutive regional tournament appearance, and we wish the team the best of success next season.
