Bailey Morris, a 2010 graduate of Sandy Creek, coaches with the Eighmey’s at UNK and has helped the Loper women jump out to a perfect 12-0 record.

Eighmey, Morris leading big things in UNK women’s program

One little girl idolized a high school girl during one of the most storied runs in Nebraska high school girls basketball history at Sandy Creek High School.

Their relationship together started when Bailey Morris witnessed a 95-game win streak as an elementary student at Sandy Creek, before moving to Silver Lake and ultimately returning to Sandy Creek to help the Cougars win the 2010 Class C-2 state title.

Carrie (Hofstetter) Eighmey was a player during that 95-game winning streak at SC, as well as helped the Cougars earn four state titles.

As players during their days of competition in high school and college, success was day-to-day, it was dominant because of years of hard work and the players that they both played with who worked hard to be successful in high school and college.
