Perkins County ended their season 15-11, which coach Monica Cole is incredibly proud of.
“I am super proud of these girls,” she said. “They have come so far throughout the season and it has been fun to embark on the 2020 season. The potential this team has for the future will be exciting to see unfold!”
Cole saw the most improvement over the season when it came to the girls believing in themselves and each other. She also observed the team improve their hustle, grit, and determination to compete without giving up.
One game Cole is particularly proud to have coached this season is the game against South Platte in Paxton on Sept. 17, where the girls gained a 2-1 victory.
She added that there are so many more games where the team competed and battled, which she is proud of as well, including their game against North Platte St. Pat’s.
