This past weekend was the first round of the state tournament for the U-15 boys team that I coach - the Lafayette Thunder. After 4 games we finished first place in the West and are headed into the State quarter finals next Saturday. I was proud of the guys. After being guaranteed a qualification to the next round, we played one more game and it was the best of the weekend. That kind of focus is a great sign. Wish us luck this upcoming round - the competition coming out of the East is tough.
