Tolsia Head Coach Todd Maynard
“… Friday was a good Section victory for us. Jacob Mollette and Jesse Muncy are playing lights out right now. They both shot the ball well against Sherman and East Hardy. Those boys are also passing the ball to the open man and making the extra pass.”
“… The road trip to East Hardy was great for us as a team. It is something the kids will remember for the rest of their lives. We also played well, so that helped. I thought the real MVP was our bench they were into it the entire 32 minutes, we only had about 10 fans in the crowd and our guys brought energy throughout. They are a tight knit group, they all like each other and they want one another to be successful.”
“… We have a tough stretch beginning Tuesday at Johnson Central with Buffalo and Lawrence Co. in between a trip to Naugatuck next Tuesday. We are 9-2 right now and this will tell a lot about our squad.”
