For seniors Jacie Morris and Kait Hatfield the 2022-23 basketball season was a rewarding one at Schuyler County. They helped lift the Lady Rams to a 23-6 record and capture the program’s first district title since 1999. Morris says it was a rewarding way to round out her high school career.
The Lady Rams had lost in the district title game each of the last two years to Scotland County. Morris and Hatfield made up a senior class of six players on this year’s Schuyler County roster. Hatfield says the whole team had a close bond.
The Lady Rams won 20 or more games in each of the last three seasons, thanks in part to Morris and Hatfield. Morris discusses her class’ legacy.
Morris will continue her basketball career at North Central Missouri College. Meanwhile, Hatfield will compete in track and play softball at Columbia College. Hatfield says she’s prepared for balancing sports and academics in college.
Hatfield will major in biochemistry at Columbia. Morris intends to get her general degree while at NCMC.
