I (Coach Nuxoll) was pleased with the team’s focus and the way they worked together to try some new plays. Serving was definitely a plus for us. Our tough serving helped to keep Corydon from running a faster offense out of the middle. I’m excited to start the season and to see what these girls can accomplish together this year”, summarized Head Coach Tammy Nuxoll.
