"We had some really good moments this weekend, but couldn't find the consistency we need to come out with a win," head coach Kathryn McAllister said. "We're looking forward to a rematch against Macksville and Pretty Prairie tomorrow night and will hopefully go into sub state with two more wins."
The Lady Thunderbirds will play in a triangular with Macksville and Pretty Prairie tonight. The Mustangs are hosting and matches will start at 6 p.m.
