Head coach Jeff Dvorak said, “Tri-Valley has a very big and strong club, and we certainly played right with them the whole way.”
Julie Rice led the Quarriers with nine points and four rebounds in the game. Karen Eddy had eight points and four steals. Dell Rapids shot 33% from the field and 3-4 from the free throw line. The Quarriers also committed 17 turnovers in the game.
” In tight games versus good teams, we can’t afford unforced mistakes, and we had too many of those tonight. 17 turnovers versus a team that didn’t press is just not going to do it. Overall, we took away some good lessons that we’ll carry into our final stretch – execute our offense, avoid unforced errors, keep playing strong defense and have confidence that we can play with anyone,” said Dvorak.
Dell Rapids falls to 5-11 on the year. The Quarriers will travel to Salem to take on McCook Central/Montrose on Thursday, February 7th.
