Coach’s quote: “Coach Fuhrmeister continued to hold down the fort while I could not be there. Watching from home, I was very proud of our enthusiasm, defensive execution and unselfish play. We have specific areas we are working to improve on the defensive end, and I really saw our players pay attention to detail in those areas. The ownership and commitment to each other that our program has shown this past week is a very proud moment. I am thankful to have players who buy in to what we are trying to achieve as a program, as well as coaches who can step in and deliver the same messages. All of these experiences will help us moving forward.” – Concord’s Tim LaTorra

Coach’s quote: “I am very proud of our girls. A lot of adversity was overcome the last week and half. They stayed together, they worked hard, and they put themselves in a position to earn something tonight. Tonight we had to work through some things we haven’t seen before. Our girls stayed the course, stayed composed and showed that they can win in different ways. We have a great group of girls who are unselfish and have a common goal. I am excited to see how this can carry over to our future regular season games. We are grateful to Manchester Central for hosting and having us in the tournament.” – Concord’s Tim LaTorra
