“I’m proud of the way our kids played this entire year we’ve had to fight several up hill battles throughout the year but this hill was a task to tall for anyone and to climb,” head coach Todd McDaniel said. “I’m extremely disappointed in the professionalism of our officiating staff that created a environment not conducive for high school athletics.”
