‘We could have won this tournament, if we had shown up in the first game,’ said Lanesville coach Bill Krammes. ‘We just went through the motions and never challenged Loogootee.
‘We actually played a very spirited game, lots of credit to the girls for continuing to work hard under very adverse circumstances,’ he said. ‘It would be very easy for them to fold their tent and go home, but they continue to work hard and try to improve on their deficiencies. I am very proud of their work ethic and dedication. If we stick together and continue to improve, maybe we can make a difference come tournament time.’
