Ss. Peter & Paul coach Joe Herzog said the boys continued their aggressive play on defense this evening which led to multiple layups  on the other end.  
“St. Andrews had a smaller team and we could take advantage of our speed as well stepping into passing lanes, hands up and rebounding,” Herzog said. “We shot the ball much better from the outside with more confidence.  As we take the next two  weeks off I hope we can come back with the same mind set they have had to finish off our season.”

Ss. Peter & Paul coach Sarah Ronnfeldt said the girls started out very rough.
“We looked tired and out of shape,” Ronnfeldt said. “It had been five days since we played and it took us a while to get into a groove.  We came out much stronger in the second half and started pulling ourselves together.  We did a good job in the 2nd half of moving our feet and chasing the ball down.Addi Brownfield had a great game all around on the boards and offensively.  She was seeing the court well last night.  Lillian Rohrbach did a great job of moving to the open spots and had some beautiful cuts.”
