WARRENTON, Ga. - They may be undefeated in their sub-region, but the Warren County High Screaming Devils still have room for improvement, said Head Coach Brian Wallace.
"We've got to play more aggressively on the offensive side of our game," Coach Wallace said after his Screaming Devils handily defeated the visiting Lincoln County Red Devils 86-44 last Friday night. "We're doing well, defensively speaking. But offensively, we need to step it up a notch or two."
The win over Lincoln County was Warren County's second of the week. Just three days earlier, they defeated Aquinas of Augusta. The team now sports an 8-4 overall record and an undefeated Sub-Region 7-A (B) record of 4-0.
As several crucial games await the Screaming Devils down the road, Coach Wallace contends that his team must do the little things to win games, such as staying focused and steadily improving from game to game.
"We've got to get better, if we're going to be the team I think we are capable of becoming," Coach Wallace added.
