“I thought the kids had great energy,” said head coach Greg Jenkins. “At girls’ halftime when we were warming up - I was worried they were going to be flat. I had a little friendly chat with them and told them, ‘Every night you’re playing District 2A, you gotta bring it. Especially when you’re on the road.’ Joaquin’s got a good team and I was pleased with the kids,” he said.
