“Their (Miller’s) girl’s team is not that strong this year, but it’s a close game for us, you know, travel-wise,” Coach Kelvin Cochran said. “Local people come to the game, and it was a good game. Our girls took care of business early.”
According to the coach, this game gave younger players valuable experience: “Everybody got to play, and it’s always good when everybody gets to play. So that was a good thing, a good experience for our young girls, to get some playing time.”
The girls then traveled to the Colquitt County Christmas tournament.
