“… We’ve played a very challenging schedule this year. This past week of the season we played the top 2 teams of the 57th district to better prepare us for tournament time. We split with them. We feel the challenges and adversity we’ve had throughout the season has prepared us for this time of year. We’re excited and the girls have worked extremely hard to get ready for this week and we are hoping we’re fortunate enough to get back to the regional tournament. We can’t wait to play Monday night. We thank everyone for their support all year and we hope to see you all in the stands come Monday to cheer us on.”
