Post Game Quotes: - Select Coach Chance Fry
I thought the entire team played well today. In particular Karen (Hardy) had a great game. We were able to play the way we wanted to. Our players are doing on the field what we work on in practice. That hard work pays off in the games. The fact that it was hot today did not slow our team down.
