· In the news:
- Senior Diedra Barker: “We’re all pretty nervous because we know some of the girls that play on Waynesville’s team. We’re all really nervous, excited and ready to kick some butt.”
- Senior Jordan Miller: “It’s kind of a miracle for me to be out here.” “I think I was just saving enough to play one more season. I try to play every down like it’s my last because you can’t make it up next year. This is it.”
- Senior Maggie Hinkle: “We’re just thinking about what’s ahead of us. We’re working hard, and we’re going to continue to work hard.”
- Senior Tim Booth responding to being a captain: “It means I have to step up and have people trust me. They have to know that I'm not going to let them down. That's why I took over the center spot."
- Coach Meibers: "You can bet both teams will play this game with a lot of enthusiasm. You can’t coach this game with your arms crossed, and you can’t play the game in slow-motion.”
- Golf Coach Dave Hall, regarding the Waynesville match: “Putting hurt us. We probably three-putted at least three greens. The putting and the short game just aren’t there right now, but you can see it in practice. If they can put it all together, they are going to be pretty tough.”
- Coach Burnside regarding the Badin game: “It was a battle between the two teams from the beginning to the end. We went into halftime tied 0-0, which gave the girls confidence. It made them think 'Hey, we can beat Badin.' They're a young team, but they're very talented. We just stepped to the ball more and that was the difference in the game."
- Coach Dave Farrish, regarding the Middletown Christian Invitational: “The course was challenging, but they ran well. Sometimes when you run, it’s not about setting a personal best time but about beating other people, which they did. Our kids had run really hard the week before at a place that had a lot of hills, and they were able to attack them really well.”
- Coach Meibers: "That’s a good ballclub, and we played with them for a half. We’ve had to battle through some adversity, and our kids battled, and we played as well as we could have played. We battled right to the end. We had a costly turnover. Obviously that swung momentum because I felt going into the locker room that we had a little momentum going our way … It’s like a repeating cycle, we can’t get it to stop right now." “Our defense stepped up and played a phenomenal game, and offensively we didn’t do anything to help them out.”
- Coach Burnside: "Every defender has played very well. They've played as a unit, and they've talked to each other. Team work and communication on defense has been very good these last two games."
- JV Coach Carla Snyder: “It's been nice seeing the progression from last year to this year. They have really been improving from day one, and I can't wait to see how they are playing toward the end of the year.”
- Coach Dave Farrish: “It's been a long time since we've had five runners on the girls team and finished as a team. It's good that we have girls interested. If we can just keep the numbers up and improve recruiting, we'll be good.”
