Tolsia Head Coach Ric Morrone
“… Riverview: Got off to a slow start and trailed by 11 at the half. Showed a lot of heart and cut it to two and had the ball with a minute to go. A tough place to play and the experience will pay off for us down the road.”
“… At Mingo Central we played a great game against the number one Team in Class AA. We’re even at the half, but struggled in the third quarter. We got down but fought back within 6 in the fourth quarter and scored twenty-nine points in the final eight minutes. A great team effort, I’m very proud of our girls it was a tough two road games in three days.”
