Coaches thoughts…”So proud of the girls. The energy was up all game. Oak Hill had us on the ropes, we made alot of fielding errors. However, we answered. Anna Clifton with her first big game of many this year. She played flawless at 3rd base, and had an outstanding at bats. When the game is on the line some people want to be at the plate, and some people shy away from it. Our girls tonight wanted it at the end. I applaud them.”
