FROM THE COACH:
“I have been very happy with the progression which my team has made over our season thus far. Obviously there is much left to learn, but we are headed in the right direction. This weekend proved to be challenging in many ways. Road games are always difficult, especially in the states where school spirit means something completely different then it does in Canada. All three games were played over 10 hours from home, so your always dealing with bus legs, hotel beds and the struggle of finding healthy fuel. The team competed well in all three games while battling a variety of adversities. Unfortunately we ran out of mental stamina with about a quarter and a half left in our final game. I am extremely proud of our level of compete and I expect the work we put in this week to reflect what we learned about ourselves on this trip.”

PLAYER’S VIEW:
“This weekend the team faced several adversities but was able to play high intensity basketball in all three games. Although a loss occurred in the final game, the caliber of play had a notable increase since previous weekends. Hopefully this is an accurate projection of the teams growth for this year; growing each week as well as learning from mistakes.” Catherine Ross 1st year forward
