We go on the road to face what most people consider to be the best 4-A team in eastern North Carolina.

Meredith played very well for us today in singles and doubles, ... She was really hitting the ball well off both sides. She also did a great job of putting away volleys at the net in doubles.

Wilmington Hoggard will be a tremendous test for us. We will be facing a lineup that is solid from top to bottom.

Christi Murphy also played well in singles and doubles. She was hitting her forehand well today, and she was very aggressive at the net in doubles.

I thought our effort was good in the jamboree.

Everyone is getting more accustomed to it, ... We might get more complaints when school starts.

There won't be anything complicated about what we do. We're going to keep it simple and just try to execute on offense and defense. At the same time, we're going to play some people at running back, receiver and on the defensive line to see what they can do.

One thing is for sure, our kids aren't taking the chance to play for granted any more. Based on what they've seen and heard in the last week, being able to play this game means something to them.

We will get a good test with Edenton Holmes, one of the top 2-A teams in the state. Edenton has some very good young players, and we will have to play well to win this match.
