  8. Coach’s report (Coach String)
    1. Alvarado game was a great show of our teams energy, endurance, and fight. They never gave up even when odds were not in their favor with 5 seconds left in the game.  Each week, we are seeing improvement and faster play. Spirits are high with the players as is their confidence. Decatur is a good team but we are not seeing our players act intimidated. They are ready to go and know they can complete.   Information about tickets and live streaming has been shared on Sports You and Facebook.
    2. JV teams played well last week. We continue to see those players get better and more confident.  They will play Decatur at home on Thursday at 5:00pm and approximately 6:30pm.
