“Overall, we had a good tournament. I’m proud of the way girls didn’t give up when we were several points down. They fought back to regain leads. I also liked the intensity we showed to win three game matches”, commented Charlestown Head Coach Tammy Nuxoll.
The Lady Pirates will scrimmage Lanesville on the road August 10th then open their 2016 season hosting MSC rival Corydon on August 16th in the CHS Sports Arena.
