After the game, coach Harrell said he liked his team’s performance in Damascus, which is not an easy road venue

“This was a hard fought game,” he said. “Damascus is a tough place to play. Everyone contributed tonight and we needed it. We were glad to get the win and even up our region record. Our region has to be one of, if not the toughest in the state.

“Last year in the state tournament, three of the final eight and two of the final four teams were from our region and the state champion has been from our region the last five years.”
