COACH'S COMMENTS

“... Really proud of the girls. We have been working hard to try to clean up our defense and when we do that, it’s usually a win for us. We are good in the circle and our speed puts pressure on the defense. That is four in a row for us.”

“... Four years without a District loss is pretty impressive so proud of them. The kids have been through so much this season and have pulled together this is probably the closest team I have ever coached and it really shows on the field. Losing Kenny Shapaka was tough on all of us and we have battled some sickness as well. It’s been tough all year.”

“... Region tournament coming up Monday and we just got to keep doing what we have been and play clean. It should be a dandy tournament.”
