Pulse-Journal Quotes:


·         Coach Doan, regarding Krystal Gaston: “She’s a phenomenal kid.  She was made to play a position she’s not used to and has had a great turnaround.  I rode her pretty hard.  She took a role that was given to her and has done the best she can with it. It’s been great to see her evolve.”


·        Krystal Gaston:  “The season definitely started as a struggle.  But once I calmed down and gained some composure, I’ve been able to see the floor better.  The turnovers were difficult to handle. But I didn’t let it discourage me. I put a lot of pressure on myself because I felt like I needed to step up for my team. Right now, it feels really good ... like I’ve accomplished something.”


·        Coach Amy Caudy:  “Right now, the girls’ team tends to play at the level of its competition. We’ve won a lot of matches with some good scores, but we’ve also won some matches with not-so-good scores.  It’s nice to see those Baker averages coming up. That will be really helpful for us at tournament time.”

·         Coach John Caudy:  “All year long, we’ve been looking for consistency and team chemistry.  Both of these are important as far as heading into sectionals is concerned.”
