“We started off the season by losing our first 3 games,” Athletic Director Jim Good says, “but each game we were improving and still trying to establish our identity. The boys are really starting to buy into the system, and it all came together in that championship game. By far, our best win of the season! The Knights have now won 4 games in a row and improve to 4-3 on the season.”
