Falcons hope early schedule pays off at sectional

February 22, 2011

“We told our kids this is why we schedule the way we have for the first five or six games of the season,” Glenn head coach Travis Hannah said. “They’ve been through that type of meat grinder. Hopefully, they can draw on that experience.

Even with six seniors, Argos came into the season with little collective varsity experience. Seniors Matt Hollar and Sam Edmonds were the exception and have led the team throughout.
