“Very proud of the effort our players have displayed in winning championships to get us to this stage,” said Head Coach Patrick Smith, “However, there’s still lots more to accomplish beginning with preparing to play a very good Pearl River squad. As much as we have improved, there are still areas we can elevate and I’m really looking forward to this week of practice to continue the progress. I just truly enjoy coaching this team and so looking forward to preparing for Hutch.”
