There’s no disappoint here. I mean, just to be able to play on the last game on the last day, there’s nothing disappointing about that. I mean everybody wants to win right. I mean if not everyone wanted to win, why would you play? We have 49 people in our high school. 49! If you want to measure that up with Galena, it’s a David vs. Goliath story right. Like they’re number one…we’re number 3. We were the underdogs. And I thought we gave it a heck of a run. So disappointed? No I thought we gave it a heck of a run.Coach Jennifer Hayes
