“… Tough loss in the district championship, but I am proud of our guys for not giving up and fighting until the very end. Got ourselves in a hole in the first half and ran out of time trying to recover in the second half. Region draw meeting today at 2. Looking forward to see who we will be paired against for our first round game in the region tournament next week.”
