the road trip to Great Bend Middle School to face a triangular with Hays

growth and fight I saw in the team these last two nights and I am excited

From Coach Lacen –
The SRMS 8th grade A team saw two losses last night against Hays and Great
Bend. The first set of both games were spent trying to get the girls to
light their fire. By the time the second set of each game rolled around,
the girls had finally hit their stride. They battled hard in the second set
of both games and gave the other teams a run for their money. Our blocking
and block coverage looked the best that it has all season. We took some
hard serves and hits last night as well. We’ve made it to a place where
every girl understands her role on the team and court, and has taken
personal responsibility each. I’m very proud of the work ethic and positive
attitudes that the girls continue to have. They show Apache pride and great
sportsmanship every time they step out onto that court.
