“Learning process, it is a transition. The girls work hard in practice. We are going to get better every day we practice,” says new Farmville Central girls basketball coach Johnnie Joyner, “I know it is a winning tradition. I was here before. These girls have been working hard. I tell them all the time hard work will pay off.”
