The season came to an end on Tuesday night for the Lady Jackets as fell behind early and couldn’t put together a big enough rally in the second half to fall on the road in the first round of the Class AAAAA State Tournament.

The Lady Jackets (16-12) had a tough start as they trailed 19-10 after one quarter and 42-21 at the half.

"It's tough to lose the last one," said Calhoun head coach Jaime Echols. "We have played a really tough schedule, but I think Jackson might have been the quickest and best overall team we played all year. I think they'll make a deep run.

"I am very proud of our team and the success we had against a very tough schedule. I will miss the seniors dearly, but I am already looking forward to next year."
