This time of year can be a hectic time for coaches. The regular season ended yesterday and everyone is gearing up for next weekâ€™s district tournaments.
A win or two there and itâ€™s on to regional where a good showing puts them in the state tournament.
For many players, tournaments can be a stressful time. They know a loss (at certain points of the district and regional tournaments) will mean the end of the season.
