“We played really well. Our defense, our hits were really good. We had a couple of missed serves but I am proud of everyone and how we played tonight,” Smith said. “Right now, we are getting ready for Todd County Central in the district tournament. Our practices and training has stepped up and if we play our hearts out and together, we can win that match and get to the region.”
