In the title match, the Pintos wasted little time in dispatching the Coyotes, beating them in three straight games.It was a disappointing finish to a wild ride for the Hilltoppers in their journey to the state semifinals.“I’m really proud,” Hilltopper senior Emma Myers said following the loss. “We improved so much, and it really showed in this tournament.
