“Our girls came out and played extremely hard with a lot of heart. We have been stressing to the kids how important it is in changing the culture of Como-Pickton girls athletics, and tonight was just a stepping stone in the right direction that the kids are truly on board with where we want to be. I couldn’t be more proud of the girls. Our bench played just as much of a role as the players out on the court did tonight, and that says a lot about where our program is going. We have this week to prepare for Saltillo on Saturday,” said Brandi Crouch, Como-Pickton coach.
