Coach Randy Edens said he felt good about his teams performance.
This gave us a good chance for us to see if we were better than our Hole in the Wall performance here earlier in the season, Edens said.
I think both the boys and girls have a great shot at both districts and state. We just have to do what were capable of and well be okay.
