“… Great game against Russell, We had to play from behind twice but was able to work as a team and pull out a win.”
“… Defensively we were pressured all evening and our defense held strong and played great. We had our chances on offense and made them count when we needed to. This is the type of game we needed to build confidence heading into district and region tournament.”
“…Senior Ellie Webb #33 hard working and one of the most unselfish players I have ever coached. Her ability to see the field and create for us has been amazing over the last 4 years. Definition of true team player comes to mind when I think bout Ellie and what she brings to this team.”
“… Senior Citori Branham #10 is probably the most improved player from last season. No matter what position she’s playing she gives everything and leaves it on the field. Her determination to make herself better is second to none on our team.”
“… This season we have tried to stay positive with Covid taking its toll on basically our everyday life. We have taken it one game at a time with the thoughts of playing every game as if it would be our last. Our two losses came from very good teams and we battled and were in both of those games til the end. Our goal is to get back to the Regional Championship game and bring that trophy back to LC. The sky is the limit with all the talent we have on this TEAM.”
