“In my opinion, my girls got tired since we traveled to London in so many consecutive days and it started to take a toll on each and every one of them,” said Tri-City coach Merrill Galloway. “I know the days that we did not travel and after practice I would tell them to go home and rest and to stay home. Some of them thought I was trying to tell them not to go and stay all night with friends, but I actually knew what would get us in the long run. I was just trying to prevent them from being exhausted from riding in the vehicles back and forth to the games. It was right at a two-hour ride each way. That makes a long day for anyone.

“However, I am not taking anything away from the other teams because they had to drive as well and they deserved to advance in the tournament and compete just like we did. I wish someone would do something about the roads around here because it just takes so long to get out of the mountains no matter your destination. We have a lot of talented young players in both leagues (Tri-City and Harlan), but one of these days we might have to combine to compete at the next level.”
