When losers become winners

The offseason is a time when players turn their weaknesses into strengths. It’s when players get stronger both physically and mentally. It’s when losers become winners.

“There really is no offseason for us,” said City College women’s basketball head coach Devin Engebresten. “When our season ends, the girls only get three weeks off.”
