Coach Dave Gerlach’s Comments:
“This week was our “bye” week on Tuesday so we took the opportunity to pound the front end of the week with three tough workouts. This week also provide several challenges of adversity and distractions. We coaches had preached all week that we must stay together and stay focused if we are going to reach our ultimate goals. This is homecoming weekend and the girls started to have their minds on other things. We knew we were the favorite today, but a Top 10 ranked team in D1 of Temperance Bedford was looking to pounce on us if we faltered. We ran an “A” and “B” varsity today because we start Championship season next week with County and needed to see who would step up. We challenged the girls to give us ultimate focus this morning before turning their minds to the dance. Although they were a little lethargic today, they stepped up and took care of business to come out on top. We have a BIG meet on Tuesday against #1 Northville on our Home course and County next Saturday. We need laser focus and determination to keep this train rolling.”
