After talking to the team, we all agreed we are very satisfied with our coaches. You should be too! I know that so far it has been disappointing for people to come and watch our team be defeated, but do you think the team and coaches take it lightly. Well if you do you had better think again. Let me ask you this, we have been defeated six times now; how many times have the girls come up on the floor without spirit, not hustling, not caring, or to lose If you can give me one example, than I guess I must have slept right through that game. It isn't easy to come up after a defeat and eat with the girls who Ju&;t beat us, but we have. We are determined to hold our heads high, will you too?

If you Friday, January 31 doulbt fbif,-! invite you to'come Woden-Crystal Lake here. some night and try to keep up! I feel the people of the community should understand that we, the players, determine the score. Our coaches are not responsible 'for our actions! They can't play. All they can do is guide us to the best of their ability, ' So don't blame ,the coaches. We don't! Face the facts, if we want to win every game, every year, it is going to take more faith than people of the community who dislike ithe decisions of the coaches and teams. If you can do better, than I ask, "Why dont you?" I'm sure there are only a few who feel this way, and I hope they soon come to. I would like to thank you for your wonderful support. It helps .and I hope it continues! Now, I would like to leave you with this thought. This year we have reached our goal, which was to become a team. A closely bound 'group of people. We all get along and respect each other no (matter who plays. In my mind ithis is a big and wonderful step! Is it really so important to' win every 'game if we can learn like this together?
