Priceville improves to 30-5, finishes area play undefeated
The Priceville Lady Bulldogs wrapped up an undefeated run in area play and improved to 30-5 overall with wins over West Morgan, Falkville, St. John Paul II and Fairview this past week.
“We are happy to have performed well in the regular season area games, but it just means that we have earned the right to play at home for the area tournament,” Priceville head coach Matthew Morris said. “That will be helpful, but we still have to win the games that matter. We’ve won in the regular season before and not won in the tournament in the past, so we know what we have to do. We’re working on getting ourselves ready and being at our best when the area tournament rolls around.”
