Comments From Coach John Adams
This was a great night for our entire team and an absolutely awesome way to honor our seven seniors with a big win while earning the Siouxland Conference Championship. Keitra Cabinboy, Grace Eckard, Alli Harms, Morgan Jensen, Mia Meyer, Taylor Titterington and Mackenzie Vos have done so much for our program in the four years they have been here, and they are one of the most selfless group of players that a coach could ask for. It was great to see Morgan get her career high and she’s playing at a very high level for us, as is Alli Harms who had another great game on both ends of the floor. Magan did a great job of getting in the paint for some nice shots while also passing well, and Kallyn controlled the game like she always does on the both ends of the floor, and I thought she was really outstanding on the defensive end. It’s a big time accomplishment for this group to win the Siouxland Conference as the league has been a grind all year with so many quality teams and coaches. We’re excited about the conference title, and look to continue to improve on Monday at practice.
