Bozeman Head Coach
¶"Yeah it's exciting for the kids, it's been a couple years since we won one. We felt like we had a good chance last year and came up a little bit short. These kids were pretty determined, we're starting to play well here at the end of the season. That was kind of our goal be as good as we can be at the end of April. We had some bumps in the road early but we got to where we want to be."
As the coach indicated, the Bucks lost in the first round last year, but made it to the region finals in oh-9 and oh-7. Again those region quarterfinal matchups set for Tuesday.
