Tolsia Head Coach Ric Morrone
“… These three players have worked very hard this past year and been a big part of our success. To finish 13-11 and get to the sectional semifinals and 3rd place in the WVHIT TOURNEY is a good season.”
“ But knowing these girls I know they have bigger goals in mind moving forward and I also know they will work as hard as they can to achieve their goals as a team.”
