It was a very satisfying win on the road against a high quality team. Now, it’s onto season 3 and the post season. Thanks to our many fans who came to the West Plains game and others who followed us on the radio. We will be working hard the next three days to get ready for the Jefferson City and the Regional Tournament.”
