Head coach Eric Brian said was pleased with the team for playing against the 2nd ranked team, but said they needed to work on some things, “We can definitely keep up with the higher ranked teams like Lindsey Wilson. We just have to work on little strategic things in practice to help us get better, like the two girls closing the block box.”
After the team headed to the locker room to discuss the game, senior Mary Dye said felt better about the team’s performance, “We definitely did better the last time we played them. So I think that’s definitely encouraging. We need to work on being excited even when we’re not winning.” Said Dye
