Lady Indians head coach Aaron Minor said he is proud of the way his team has responded this season and how they continue working hard.

The Lady Indians have had four big players step up for the team as Kinley Rendon, Brighton O’Connor, Raylle Chaney and Brooklyn Gill have come up big for Comanche this season.
