PG girls coach said the team fought hard in the loss to Atlanta
“I am very proud of the girls with their games today,” Codi Davidson, Pleasant Grove Lady Hawks head coach said. “We fought hard against Atlanta and if a couple more of our shots would’ve fallen it would have been a totally different ball game.”
Davidson said the girls pushed hard in the win over Hope.
“In the second game against hope we started out slow, and it was hard for us to fully get into our offense, but they continued to push through for a win,”
