Although the Ladyhawks went into their first round sectional tournament game with high hopes, things just didn’t fall their way. “Looking at the seeding, we picked a good match-up,” said Coaches Hunt and Neargarder. “Our team just didn’t play tonight like we know they can play.”
The teams were fairly evenly matched, but maybe it was the tournament jitters for four of the eight varsity players, playing in a varsity sectional match for the first time. You could just feel the tense nervousness coming from the court. MV did have some good plays against the Lady Indians from Mechanicsburg, including a foot play by Senior Olivia Murphy.
Despite the loss, Coaches Hunt and Neargarder feel the Ladyhawks had a great season, with some intense matches and fantastic wins.
