Ottumwa (0-2) will hit the road to open CIML Metro Conference play on Friday at the Lincoln Roundhouse against Des Moines Lincoln. The game will be the nightcap of a girls/boys opening Metro doubleheader that will start at 6:15 p.m.
“We need to come out with a lot more energy. We just didn’t come out with the type of energy we needed on the road (on Tuesday),” Kanaskie said. “I will correct that, but it doesn’t get any easier. Lincoln’s got one of the top scorers in the conference, but to get that first win on the road in conference play would be huge for us.”
