COACH'S COMMENTS

“... We didn’t cash in on some opportunities but I was really proud of the girls today. Ciana was right on it and when she missed they kept chasing so we kept calling for the pitches up in the zone. Anytime you no-hit a team and put up six runs it’s hard to beat.”

“... Lately Methax is really hitting the ball well and with power. They tried to pitch her inside and she was turning on it. We can’t continue to leave runners on and win this thing and this is our best shot in a long time so we got to get those runners in.”
