Coach’s comments: We have to come together as a team and I believe that will determine the outcome of our season. We need to get back the philosophy in Elma that Working hard together is FUN and FUN is working hard together! The players commitment and trust to one another is the key! Montesano is the team to beat and Hoquiam is a very close 2nd. We feel we can compete athletically for the league champion ship but it takes more than just good athletic ability as previously stated above.
