âI told the team after the regional final that I was very proud of the way they played vs. OBA. I thought we could have done some things better, especially in serve receive, but they played very hard, never gave up and battled until the last point was scored,â said Guymon coach Ty Ware.
âI thanked the seniors for their work this year and told the underclassmen I hope they can show the dedication the seniors did,â he said.
âOverall, I think we had a good season. There are a few matches I wish we could play again, but I think every coach thinks that,â Ware said.
