The East Jessamine girls' basketball team made history in its regular-season finale Friday night in Lexington as the Lady Jaguars won their 17th game of the season.
East defeated Sayre 52-37 and finished the regular season with a record of 17-8, only the second winning season in the program's history, the other occurring in 2002 when this year's seniors were in first grade.
Freshman Emma Young led the Lady Jaguars with 17 points. Sophomore Sarah Rainwater added 14, and sophomore Emilie Hatfield scored 8.
East Jessamine won only three games last year and only five the previous year. The Lady Jags take the court Tuesday night at home in the 46th District semifinals against Burgin (13-13), a team they lost to by one point on the road in January and beat by eight at home just eight days ago.
