Tolsia Head Coach Andrea Prince
“… I’m happy with the way the girls played as a team last night. The teamwork, communication and trust on the floor was evident in their determination to move the ball around and set up players in every position for attack opportunities. We had 11 players take the floor in our varsity matches and each one played an essential role in those wins.”
Lawrence Co. Head Coach Autumn Blevins
“… We had a lot working in our favor. Our hitters were mixing things up and the passing was on point. Huntington St. Joe has a great athletic group of girls and it was an awesome win for us.”
“… Unfortunately we were unable to finish out the Tolsia game, but our girls battled the entire game. These are things we are getting better at which will prepare us for the upcoming district tournament.”
“… Kyleah Ward has developed into a huge threat as a middle blocker and Lillian Kinser is one of our most consistent all around players. “
