Friday night’s loss to Manchester was disappointing for the Oak Hill Academy Raiders, but that did not mean the end of their season or their hopes of getting into the playoffs.
This team has proved its resiliency before in the 2010 season, bouncing back from an 0-4 start to win two in a row, including a conference win over Carroll.
“We still have an opportunity to get into the playoffs,” Gregg said. “But if we’re not going to play with anymore passion than tonight, it’s not going to happen.”
