The 2018-19 Lady Raven Basketball Team earned the program's 5 trip to the State Tournament and a berth into the Final Four! On their Road to the Final Four, the #8 East seeded Ravens took out a very good #1 East seeded Blue Valley North team in the SubState Championship game and then took out the State's overall #1 Seeded, and undefeated, Liberal High School! The Lady Ravens ended the season with a record of 16-9, Placing 4th in the always tough Sunflower League. The most notable league win was over Olathe East, who did not lose to another league team during the season. The Lady Ravens played in both Championship Games of the DeSoto and Newton Tourney, taking 2nd place to Mill Valley and Bishop Meige respectfully.
The Ravens were led by Seniors, Erika Boeh, Ashley Cass, Haley McCormick and ONW's all-time leader in Points & 3 Pointers made (Game/ Season/ Career), Sarah Beth Gueldner. SB was named Sunflower League Player of the Year, 1st Team All State (all Classes). Junior, Mary Reiber was named to All- Sunflower League Honorable Mention Team. Sarah Beth Gueldner will continue her education & basketball career at Drake University. Seniors Erika Boeh and Ashley Cass will continue their academic and athletic career at Kansas State University on their Rowing team. This team was not big in stature but showed a tremendously big heart in the way they played on the court against the toughest competition in the state throughout the year. #stubbornnesstosurvive
