“Time to take our two weeks off for the dead period, get back in the lab and be ready to roll come August,” Tucker said.
The Knights won a district title and finished the regular season undefeated for the first time since 2002. They also “defeated COVID,” Tucker said, calling the pandemic “the strongest opponent we faced all year.” Dale never had an interruption to its season.
“We turned around and made it all the way back to the regional championship in another year where everybody thought we wouldn’t even make the playoffs,” Tucker said. “Again, proud of our kids, I loved their effort and grit. This is a team I’ll remember for a long time.”
