Words From Coach:
"I once saw a quote that read: 'Sometimes you win, Sometimes you learn' - stated Coach Reis. "As a team we have learned a lot over the past season, as well as in today's game. Although we did not win, I saw many of the lessons we have learned over the year in action. It is encouraging to see the girls progressing as a unit."
