During their home opener on December 7, the Salt River High School (SRHS) Lady Eagles basketball team held a very special presentation right before the start of the game, which was against San Carlos High School. The SRHS players recognized the 2009–10 Lady Eagles basketball players, who won the state championship last school year. Their head coach, Shawn Lytle, presented the championship rings and plaques to the Lady Eagles players who were on that team, and also presented the large banner that now hangs in the SRHS gym with each player’s name on it. Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Council Representative Deanna Scabby was present, and the Lady Eagles gave her an autographed SRHS basketball jersey.
