FROM THE COACH:
“I was happy with our ability to secure two wins this weekend. Our goal is to improve each week and be the best versions of ourselves come playoff time. I think that we played a sluggish first half on both nights, and we were fortunate to respond with energized second halves, enabling us to win both games. Its cool to see different kids step up and shine each game. It makes us hard to defend if anyone on our starting lineup can go off any given day.” - Joel Coursey

PLAYER’S VIEW:
“First home game back after the Christmas break was a success against Trinity. We walked in both games with a mindset and hunger to win it all, which we did. Despite the little mistakes we had throughout the games, giving up was never an option for us! We have big goals set for the rest of the semester, and this past weekend games was just the beginning. I am excited to end the rest of the semester strong with my sisters and coaches by my side.” - Esther Ruchegeza
