Cardinals Split Games With Eagles At SEI Tourney

St. Louis SchoolThe St. Louis Cardinals ended their season in the first round of the SEI
Tournament at home losing to Jac-Cen Del 50-12.The Cardinals played hard to the end but could not provide the firepower needed to keep their season alive. Leading the scoring and rebounding for the home team was Abe Streator followed by Cody Mohr and Thomas Raver with 2. Good defensive minutes were played by Spencer Mack and Kyle Salatin. Cayden Pohlman kept the fast break alive for St. Louis but nothing could overcome the turnover
margin the visiting team produced.

The Cardinals finished a long season and demanding road schedule with a .500 record. The young team continued to practice and play hard the entire season and were certainly able to surprise a few teams.
