It was a night of firsts for the young Torches squad, in addition to notching their first conference win of 2020, head coach Clint Chase earned his first victory at the helm of the TCS program.

“Winning means that one is willing to go longer, work harder, think faster, and give more than anyone else… That is what these Torches did tonight, and I am a very proud Coach”, Chase said following the high scoring contest, “However, we have not arrived and we have a long row to hoe, so we will continue to press towards perfection, and stay humble.”
