It was a battle of the state’s 2 top 20 teams at The Rock Saturday night. #15-3A Plymouth needed a team effort despite not having two key starters in the line-up against Wawasee. “Effort” is was coach Dave Cox recieved in a 45-36 win over the Lady Warriors of Wawasee.
“This was one of our better “team” performances this season”, said Plymouth Head Coach, Dave Cox. “You know, we won’t have Marissa Green anymore, Thoden won’t be back until a couple of more games, we needed some key players make a difference. And they did. I thought.”, added Cox.
Erin Kinney played very well for Plymouth netting 15 pts and 7 rebounds.
“Erin played extremely well considering they were bumping her all over the place. She showed her versatility inside and outside tonight. She played like a Senior should.”, said Cox.
Amber Redinger added 18 pts and 9 rebounds for the Lady Pilgrims.
“She now has to be our inside presence. She’s a talented girl, who is learning that by being aggressive on the floor allows her to get better posting angles and better shots. She played well.”, added Cox.
As for Career win #300…..Coach Cox was humbled by the entire honor.
“You know….this accomplishment really isn’t my accomplishment. I know that sounds cliche. But really….every girl whose played for me over the 19 years are part of this honor. We are family here, I’d like to think. From every player, to parents, Roy & Mary Beth, to Mr. Moyer our videographer for years, and you Tony. We are successful because we do things together, we work hard together. Everybody has had a stake in this. But….I want to just say thank you to everyone.”, said Cox.
