“Sierra Hanks did an exceptional job on her match which ended up going into a grueling tie breaker and in result Sierra came up with the win. I was very proud of her,” she said.
“I’m lucky to have the group of girls I do. They are all talented and I look forward to the rest of the season as they continue to improve,” Boos said.
