Wilcox County has started the 2015 season as one of the hottest teams in the state, but it’s last year's finish that’s driving them.
While the team says it's a great achievement, it's not what they want. They say the goal this year is to make sure they don't finish number two again.
“A lot of times, you'll get a team that's complacent. We finished second, got everybody back, we're happy with where we're at,” says head coach Stephen McDuffie. “But these girls are not that way. They're going to continue to work hard. They're not happy with second. They'll continue to work hard and finish and get that goal of a state championship.”
No one on the team is shocked by their recent success.
These girls have been playing together for years. That's one reason McDuffie says the team has been so good.
The Patriots have a tough week ahead of them. They travel to Charlton County Tuesday, before hosting Echols County on Thursday.
