Quote(s) by Coach __Gary Norman______: We thought the kids started out the night on fire against Manchester. We were really hoping our momentum would continue into our final match, but we weren’t sure it would after sitting out the middle match. All of us were pleasantly surprised to see the fire keep burning as we jumped out to 26-6 lead after 6 matches. We had some individuals really step up and do the job tonight.
