Jersey head girls coach Kevin Strebel said: “We didn’t get a great look at the end. We had a corner three that didn’t go. I don’t think we haven’t been in a lot of tough games lately, which we need.”

Quincy Notre Dame head girls coach Eric Orne said the play of Sydney Hummert and Shelby Reed were keys to the win.

Connell also said he was glad to see the team moving on in the tournament and hoped they could find rhythm in the final tourney games.
