Head Coach Kim Saunders said “The girls came out on fire and played with an abundance of passion tonight. They knew the stakes were high with JB just one game back in the conference. The entire team executed the game plan. I thought Boltz had her best performance of the year, getting touches and delivering accurate free balls allowing our offense to run pin to pin. We have our final four conference matches on the road. In normal circumstances this is a tough feat add in face masks and other limitations the girls understand we have to focus on one match at a time.”
The Maidens will travel to play the Northern Polar Bears Monday evening with a 5pm JV start.
