“We never gave up all day long,” said Head Coach Chuck Wimberly after the victory in game two. “We felt like we played good enough to win game one and GMC rallied late to win game one, but our Lady Bobcats came through in the end with a tremendous victory over a very good GMC squad in game two. I am so proud of our team and their never say quit attitude. This was a great win for our program.”
