Council Rock South Comments

I'll start out with Truman as their girls deserve recognition for the win. It was their Senior Night and their line SR, Brianna Cliney really had a strong game and they came out fired up and played hard for her. She just missed a double double as she had 11 rebounds and 9 points but she brought relentless energy. She is an impressive kid, plays hard, showed a lot of growth and maturity from when I first saw her play until tonight. She did a fantastic job singing the Anthem for the game. It was phenomenal. She deserves a lot of credit for how she carries herself. Truman always plays hard and with a lot of energy at their place and they played well today. Colette and her staff bring a lot of energy from the bench and when the players feed off of it, it becomes a tougher place to play. They had a little more jump to them with it being senior night as well. Keys also had a strong and with 12 & 12 she was very active. Their OG (Sophomore Dejia Campbell) just keeps coming at you, she is really
Good going downhill with a head of steam, she played well too.

For us it's been a tough and emotional week for us- from Senior Night Tuesday to only dressing & playing 8 girls vs Neshaminy Wednesday to the game tonight just a lot of emotions over the last 72 Hours or so. We came out a little stagnant, as has been for story for almost every game this year we battled back. We had it within one possession or tied with under three mins left after being down 31-14 at one point. I feel for our seniors (Allison McGowan and Emma Jones), it's always tough when it ends especially for two girls who were four year players. In my first year, while I'm not happy with overall record and results I told our girls I was really proud of their effort in 20' of our 22 games. They battled and competed. We had a lot of young girls gain valuable experience this year and we need to build it up from the off season. One thing I was pleased with ALL YEAR was the leadership Allison McGowan and Bailey Vetter exhibited. The foundation is in place to change the culture here and really become a competitive program, I am looking forward to a productive off season. As a first year head coach I learned a lot about my team but also about myself and the girls are to thank for that.
