&uot;Last year we only had one go, so we’ve come a long way,&uot; said Cathedral coach Craig Beesley. &uot;I felt like we did real well and gave a good showing. I think we can continue to do well if the kids stay interested. Having three go as far as these three did should create a little more interest.&uot;
