Tide head coach Matt Wassil, in his first year back after taking a five year absence, talked about the season, saying, “I just thought we finished very strong after a rough start. But the kids hung in there. They worked hard all season and stayed focused. Winning three of our last four games made me very proud of this group. And I am also proud and happy for senior Zach Marshall (14 points) on how he played in his last game. The whole team was pulling for Zach and that was great to see.”
