PEORIA, Ill. — Peoria High School is in a girls basketball sectional for the first time in 13 years.
And the Edwards family couldn’t be happier. Meechie Edwards is coaching his daughters Derria and Denali this season.
Derria Edwards, a senior, and Denali Craig-Edwards, a freshman, have helped fuel Peoria High’s success. Peoria High beat Rock Island, 53-43, to win Thursday’s class 3A Galesburg regional title game.
The win gave the Lions their first regional trophy since 2007 and gives them a sectional semifinal date with Kankakee on Monday night.
