Quote from Coach Allen

What an amazing experience! God has shown me the way to these girls and we had a trip that was pretty amazing. Everything fell into place beautifully. These girls are the best to work with, the heart, dedication, talent and growth shown thru over these past two days and to be part of this trip was such a blessing. Every single match from these girls got better each time. Team 1 placed 2nd in the dual tournament by 1 point (coaches could have been more strategic and possibly could have pulled out a win- I blame it on them!) Team 2 placed 7th and Team 3 placed 10th. That is right! Texas represented 3 teams this weekend all of the way in Iowa!! What a long, trip, but SO rewarding! I cannot wait until next time, but until then, we all need to get some rest and focus on UIL!
