“We went 1-3 in the tournament this past weekend. It was a very competitive tournament. We had very starts to our last two games, but could not sustain our intensity. With practice we will get into shape and will close out future games,” said Coach Evan Eads.
The JV Warhorses play Ingram on press night and then head to the Dilley tournament this weekend.
