"It was good to get a win and have a lot of different girls play some significant minutes," said Berkeley Springs coach Dale McCumbee. “East Hardy is not as competitive this year, but our girls played well. I thought Deidra shot the ball well, Casey had another good game and it was good to see Sydne play well. As we go forward there are still things that we need to improve; that's always the case. We want to play good defense and be consistent for the entire 32 minutes. We are making progress and this was a solid effort."
