QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"We can't control adversity, and this team has been through a lot of that. Basically, I told them to do a better job after that (delay), and they did. Are things where we want them to be? No, but we are getting there, and that's what's important." —South Lafourche first-year head coach Dennis Skains after the Tarpons rallied to beat Terrebonne after a weather delay.
