"The girls are working on their conditioning. We haven't played as many quality games as Oxford has and that was evident, especially in the third quarter when they took advantage of us and jumped out to a 12 point lead which we couldn't cut into," SHS co-coach Charlie Chambers said. "They have a very good club. We were hoping for closer games in our New Brunswick swing but the girls played well. Our players need to realize they need to work hard at both ends of the floor and also in practice - and good things should come our way because of it."
