We ended up losing the first two games and then things started clicking and we won the last game. Our second set of games was with CGB in Beardsley where we won all three games, 15-4, 15-10, and 15-6. Next we went to Browns Valley.

Next we played Wheaton and had very good showing at home winning: all four games, 15-9, 15-6, 16-14, and 15-9. That leaves us with a ten match winning streak to date and we hope to work hard and continue that streak with our next set of games with Canby. The girls have all been working very hard and it shows!
