“The girls are really starting to gel and get their basketball legs under them, they are making some real headways now,” said Head Coach Van Bailey. Fullington will be home Friday against Skipstone in their first Region game.
Boys drop game 45-31
The Fullington boys were missing some players for this game and it may have cost them.
