Our first tournament included tough 3A competitors Gladewater, Spring Hill and Athens. It’s always a good tournament to help us realize our weak areas and what needs to be improved before we meet up with our district and regional opponents. Overall, we competed well, and if we just keep getting better from this point on, then we’ll have a very successful season.
