She says they knew they had to get used to the size of the other team.
Christensen said they wanted to be aggressive against the press. She says they’ve been a run-and-gun team all season long and they wanted to beat Assumption off the press.
Audubon coach Derek Sonderland says his team was confident despite being considered an underdog. He says they talked about what they would have to do to play with them and have a chance to win. Sonderland says they did what they needed to and were focused and understood what they needed to do.
