After a stellar season, the St. John Lady Eagles find success once again, as junior Payton Passantino is named Most Valuable Player (MVP), Keri Yarbrough finds her place on first team all-district, and Claire Pearce makes second team all-district.

The Lady Eagles broke the "curse" (never advancing past quarter-finals) this year under the leadership of head coach Chase Mancuso, and advanced to the semi-finals of the state tournament, the furthest the team has ever made it in St. John school history.
