Head Lady Colt Basketball coach Marisha Olesinski overall was pleased with her team’s effort.  

Olesinski said, “Besides our shooting the girls played really well tonight. We could not get a basket to go down and I think that was the biggest factor tonight. I cannot say how proud I am of them. They did not give up all night. We had second and third opportunities to get baskets to go in, because the girls were getting offensive rebounds.” 

The next game for the Lady Colts will be tomorrow (Friday) at 5 PM as they face the Hagerman Lady Bobcats at Godfrey Athletic Center.
