After a tough loss to HF-L Saturday, head coach LeAnna Presler was happy to see her girls respond to adversity.
“The girls fought another 50 minute battle, and I am so impressed with their work ethic tonight,” coach Presler said. “These are the games where all of their work from the off season comes into play. Although we were tied at half time 3-3 the girls knew it came down to who wanted the win more in the second half. I am so proud that they are taking care of each other on the field, they’re playing to each other’s strengths and learning what they have to do to work effectively together. It’s apparent that we have talent spread all across the field here, and with the amazing team chemistry that they have, they are on a different level this season. Right now we are 3-1, which means we are tied for the same number of wins from our 2019 3-13 season. We want to keep this momentum going and I have confidence that these girls will do just that. We are home Wednesday night against Marcus Whitman.”
