Coach’s note

“We didn’t get the results we wanted by any stretch of the imagination. The goal of the spring break trip is to prep us for conference play and I think it did that.  I told the guys after the (last) game that if we were only going to win one game on that trip, it might as well be the last one before the long bus ride back!” 

Alex Childers, head coach
