Overall, I felt really good about us defeating a well coached Colorado City team. I was very proud of the girls. It was great experience for our team to be down 5 points midway through the third quarter and come back to win the game by 9 points. That type of game and experience will be very valuable down the road, head coach Blake Eddleman said.
