“We haven’t talked it (state) and we rarely talk about it but for them it’s exciting to see how excited they are. For this group of girls to be able to prove that they can move up to Class 2A, which is typically a tough jump from 1A to 2A. But as we said all along, we focus on what we do best, and we can get to the postseason, we tend to peak and they certainly have played well.”

(Ellsa Bonnell)
“Especially to go back, we know what it’s like to go back there and we worked really hard to back to it (state) so it’s really exciting to go back and it really shows we deserve to be in 2A.

(Mia Venturini)
“I’ve never experienced it before so I’m happy to be a first timer, I know for all the seniors, they is a great moment for them because all they know is winning state and I’m just glad I could be apart of that.”
