Coach Amanda Player said, “We played a great game against Salado and have finally separated ourselves by taking the lead in district. We only have 2 more games left in the first round of district: against Rosebud-Lott and Jarrell. Continuing to work hard in practice is not an option for us. Once the 2nd round of district starts, everyone always gets better. We have to keep working hard enough to stay a step ahead of everyone else.”
