“I expect that every year out of my girls,” Nies said. “I don’t want to have a down year and say hey, ‘we’ve got to reload.’ I expect us with our feeder system and the talent we’ve got coming up here, I expect us to contend every year. We may not ever win a state title, but by golly we’re going to be pretty doggone good.”
The Panthers host Knox tonight, while the Berries host the Logan Classic on Saturday.
The Classic starts at 9 a.m. with Logan playing Knox and then Crown Point and South Bend Washington in pool play.
