COACH CHAD HANSON SAID
“With a strong desire to compete well, we came up short in our execution of skills. Jamestown puts continuous pressure on each skill area and we need to grow in being able to respond and execute against that pressure. We have a few weeks to grow and prepare for hosting the GPAC Tournament on March 30 as the second seed.”
