Minooka had a strong game versus Joliet Central and this was expressed by head coach Mike Kargle.

“I was pleased with our effort against Joliet Central,” he said. “We played well as a team. We were able to get quite a few guys some additional playing time which sometimes can lead to confusion on the court.  Our seniors did a great job of leading some of the less experienced guys while they were out there on the court.”

He said their strongest part of the support of each other.

“We played well as a team both in terms of actual performance as well as encouragement. The energy level was really high throughout the entire match,” Kargle said.
