"Our captains Gronewald & Fronning really stepped it up tonight.  They were excellent leaders on the court.  I was really happy with Larson as she played her best game of the season.  My favorite state was as a team we had 20 assists and 56 rebounds.  The girls played with intensity and are coming together as a team."
