"We worked hard all day," said PC Coach Bob Black."The lanes really were hooking and all of our players kept moving left, close to the fourth arrow and Sean was in front of the ball return on the right lane using the fifth arrow. Some learned how far they could go today. It was nice to get Dave Wilburn back on track."
