Eagles coach Sterling Beane, pleased with his team’s performance, commented on the results. “Going in to the tournament,” he said, “I thought we had a good chance of placing at least third. We knew we faced some tough competition. What really helped us was getting five wins in the semifinals [along with four in the finals].
Beane continued to thank all those who helped make the annual Braxton tournament a success. He especially mentioned sponsor Go-Mart, Inc. and Canna Drake, who ran the hospitality room. He also wanted to thank the parents and all the volunteers who worked the two-day event.
