   “I was extremely pleased with the way we played in this tourney,” said Loogootee Coach Mike Tippery. “We had eight total wins out of 15 matches against tough competition and were just a few points away from winning a couple more.

   Coach Tippery commented about the tourney, “There were not enough teams so Jasper filled the final spot with a second team (Jasper 2). We caught a tough break in that the way things played out, we were the only team to face No. 7 Jasper in all five positions. We were 0-5 in those matches but competed well. We were 8-2 in the remaining matches.”
