It has been a history making season for the Lady Indians who are 32-2. Bow is on a 22 match winning streak and have not lost since September 21st when they fell to top five ranked Lincoln Lutheran at the Seward Tournament. During the stretch, Broken Bow claimed its first Southwest Conference Tournament title since 1988. Central Nebraska’s Sports Source asked head coach Skylar Morris if she has had time to process and appreciate the accomplishments that have been achieved so far.
Now the focus is on the tournament. When we visited with coach Morris on Tuesday, we asked her what the focus has been this week in practice.
