“Having Addie (Sipes) back on the line-up really helped us get our offensive going and Dani (Imler) and Lainie (Sipes) played one of their best games so far. Lydia (Byler) picks up where she left off before her injury, and Lacy (McIlnay) becomes a team leader in her sophomore year.
“I can’t say enough about everyone’s determination and hectic tonight. It was a great win to start another week on a tough schedule. “
