“We needed to end (our losing streak),” W.S. Neal head coach Jeff Haney said.
We started hot and then got into a rut. It has just been one of those things. We played Bayside Monday and they were tough. They are a great team. The girls played. They did not have an opportunity to set the ball up today like they did against Excel. It was just a different type of game, but today we were able to play our game. We did exactly what we wanted to do and if we can continue that, we will win a lot more games.”
