Coach Aaron Gingerich commented, “The girls played well from the get go. It was good to see us sustain that effort throughout the game. We did a much better job on the boards tonight which allowed us to get some run outs and easy baskets. Things are starting to come together for us as we head towards tournament time.”
With the win IMS moves to 6-10 on the season, and 6-9 in the SEISC. IMS next plays Thursday night at West Burlington.
