Comments From Coach Adams

“I was very proud of all of our girls tonight as this is a very good win over a strong Sioux Central team. Laura Nielsen got the night off to a great start by doing an amazing job signing the National Anthem and we kept the momentum going from there.  Grace Wintz got us going in the first half on both ends of the floor and played a terrific game.  Kallyn’s four points to end the half gave us some great momentum and confidence.  We knew Sioux Central would keep battling but every time they made a run the girls had an answer.  Ali Goehring and Magan did a great job taking care of the ball and hitting free throws, and Camry made some really strong post moves in the second half.  Kallyn had another very strong floor game and got her teammates great looks all night. We had great bench minutes and amazing energy from our entire bench again all night. We’re excited to advance and are looking forward to playing a great North Union team on Friday night.”
