“I’m very proud of our teams.This is back to back seasons our girls squad has gotten to the 10-win mark.Today was a lot of good experience for some of our eighth-graders. It’s good to see our younger players embrace the role of playing a higher seed. That will take them very far in the future with this experience. A few more matches are the difference between the regional tournament. I’m proud of our teams.”
