The Chapel Hill Lady Devils posted an Area Championship. It was a tall task that the Lady Devils made happen as they were off for the past ten days due to the poor weather, had one practice and showed up and played the game. “Honestly, I was really proud of all the girls” said Coach Matt Garrett. “We were off twice as long as the Christmas break and every girl did the best they could in our one practice and the game. Those are tough situations to overcome. We were a bit worn out at the end of this one!” Coach Garrett finished.
