"It means a lot to us to still have such a high ranking in the state and the girls have been working extremely hard in these first couple of weeks to work out any little kinks in matches," said Head Coach Pat Hensley. "We hope to be at our best at counties in a couple of weeks when we get to counties, we're definitely hungry for more."
Gill will be back on the court today at 3:45 p.m. against Ridge.
