“…Tough game early in the week against Floyd Central. We came out flat and they were ready to play. Give them credit they played the better game on Tuesday. We have to watch that game film and learn from our mistakes and get ready for them if we meet them again in the district tournament.
“…I felt the end of the week we had two good road tests and were able to pull out victories. Proud of our girls for finishing the week strong. One more week of games to prepare for the district tournament. We are looking for a strong finish next week.”
