ANGOLA, Ind. (WFFT) - The Trine women's basketball team was just one win away from clinching the program's first-ever trip to the Elite Eight, but it just wasn't meant to be.
After cruising through the first two rounds of the Division III NCAA Tournament, the Thunder made the long trek out to Maine last week.
Just over 24 hours ahead of their showdown with top-seeded Bowdoin in the Sweet 16, they were on their way to practice when they got the devastating news.
The remainder of the tournament had been canceled due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The announcement brought Katy Steers' career to a sudden close.
Steers was the lone senior on Trine's roster.
She averaged nearly 10 points per game this season while leading her team to a 23-6 record.
Although Steers' career didn't end the way she wanted it to, she leaves as the program's all-time leader in games played, games started and games won.
