Girls Win Consolation Championship

After a tough fight and a hard loss to the Sayre Lady Eagles in the opening round of the 2019 Western Equipment Classic basketball tournament, the Cordell Lady Devils battled their way over host team Arapaho-Butler and then Erick to claim the consolation championship.
