"There was a lot that I liked," he said. "We're going to be able to press more, be more up-tempo. We're going to be smaller. I just need a little more time with my freshmen."
The first three off the bench were all freshmen: Margaret Hatch, Lexi Faietta and Sarah Felkel.
"I'm going to continue to go with my freshmen off the bench," said Rogers. "And they're only going to get smarter."
LAKE REGION, meanwhile, jumped up to first place. The Lakers beat third-ranked York six days earlier.
Standout center Tiana-Jo Carter said the Lakers knew early on that they had to step things up against Greely, which beat Lake Region earlier in the season.
"We knew what we had to do to beat them," she said. "We came out and I don't think we were fully in it yet. We started slow. When we noticed that we weren't doing well, I think it kicked in and told us if we didn't pick it up, we weren't going to win the game."
Coach Paul True noted the significance of the victory.
"I think now that we're getting everybody back (healthy) and playing together, it's a confidence builder," he said. "We know on any given night we can beat anybody in the West. And we also understand that on any given night anybody can beat us."
