It is always tough to compete against, but there were outside reasons for the poor performance.
“We have been displaced once again for practices because they were putting our bleachers in,” Coach Cheryl Cromleigh said. “We were able to practice some at the Bowie Community Center but not every day. We also had our bye and hadn’t played a match since Sept. 28. Archer City is very good, but we were flat due in part to all of the adversity.”
