They were able to create some turnovers and get some easy buckets from it. I am super proud of, we do not quit! Almost every game this year I look back and we played hard no matter the outcome! That’s a testament to our mental toughness and as our skills develop I believe we will start making a name for ourselves. I want to thank all of our seniors for bearing with me and believing in what we are doing! Thank You parents for all of the wonderful support and encouragement!
