SM Head Coach Deanne Brewer said, “We played very well together… a lot different from last year’s team. I have a positive feeling about this group of girls. We have a lot of versatility and I think we will have a great season.”
The Lady Miners will have a very busy schedule this week: they hosted Immaculate Heart on Tuesday, will host Florence today at 5 and 6 p.m., travel to Ray on Thursday and finish the week at the Florence Invitational on Saturday.
