Despite the loss, Mitchell head coach Deb Thill said this was a good test for her team early in the season and mistakes that were made tonight, can be rectified.

“We had a lot of unforced errors and as the season progresses, those errors are going to be cut down,” Thill said. “Washington, depending on who you ask, is one or two in state so for us to battle them like we did I was very proud of that.”
