"It’s definitely a big deal for the girls," he said. "Big deal for anybody."
Grade 12 student Tyleigha Nelson said Friday afternoon that the team has to remain focused as they try to reach the major milestone.
"It’s huge. We have to definitely keep our head in the game and keep focused," she said. "We can’t come in just expecting to win, we have to work for that."
