COACH'S COMMENTS

“... Hard fought game, the boys played to the best of their ability. The 8th graders I've had this year have been awesome, they played with heart and they had fun while doing so. The atmosphere was awesome, but like I told the boys, we've just gotta put that behind us and look forward to the county tournament.”
