"Sam set a very balanced offense with many players scoring tonight. Nyla had a great game. She was reading the court very well. Azure, Makaeli, and Kyndra were strong defensively tonight. We are looking forward to some practice time this week to prepare for a tough New Castle squad." The Dragons won the JV and freshman contests in two sets each.
