Coaches Erica Beggs and Audra Smith agreed that the teams skated to their best of their ability, which is exactly what they were shooting for. Everyone who participated learned that it is not always about winning; more importantly, it’s about being proud of the team you’re representing, persevering and working together to perform your best.
