Raina Rogers lead the team with 5 steals.
Head coach Mary Grab commented that the girls played hard and worked well together. "It was a team effort", she said. "Everyone supported everyone else and we came away with a nice win. Troy was a quick, well-coached team with many young players; they will be a team sure to develop as the season continues."
