"We played three very good schools today and this has been an extremely competitive tournament," North Putnam coach Michelle Spencer said. "Crawfordsville has the best overall team with good skills in every position. Attica has the most powerful player. Mooresville has the best defense and blocking.

"I think we showed that we work hard, never give up, and have the talent to play with schools with amazing talent. We plan to learn from this first week and move forward into our season. I see the possibilities for greatness with our team," Spencer added.

North will take the court today against Western Boone at 6 p.m.
