Coach’s Corner

Lady Eagle Head Coach Shane Johnston says, “I am proud of the way our team was focused and ready to play tonight.”

“We are talking to our team every day about consistency and with the district schedule in front of us all in January it’s important that we start doing that now.”

“I liked our kids defensive energy today.  We want to continue to get better on the defensive end of the floor and hopefully that will help generate some more efficient offense.”
