After the game, Coach Pamela de La Flave said, “We were struggling for a while and we definitely lost games that we shouldn’t have.  Coach Rennie and I knew we had to have a quality practice to get out of the funk.  Since then, the girls have been doing much better offensively.  Coach Rennie and I are happy to have some momentum going into the State tournament;”
