The Butler girls capped a memorable regular season with a 70-31 win over Independence last Friday. The win gave the Bulldogs a perfect 14-0 record in the Southwestern 4A Conference and a 24-0 record for the regular season.
Independence has made vast improvements to their team, more than doubling their win total from last season. As most of the Patriot players are underclassmen, look for Indy to improve yet again next year.
