The Keota girls basketball team opens the season on Friday, tonight they get a dress rehersal at the Pekin Jamboree. Head Coach Jenny Hobbs, in her first year at Keota, says it’s a good chance to kind of get a feel for the game night atmosphere before they do it for real. Hobbs says they will play a half against Van Buren tonight. She says Van Buren is a team that historically is a pressing team and they have a stand out who played AAU this summer in Mackenzie Zeitler. After tonight, the Eagles will face Belle Plaine on Friday to open the season.
