GALLIPOLIS — This could be the start of something big.

At least that’s what Fairland Lady Dragons coach Leroy Baise is hoping after a 3-0 shutout of the Gallipolis Blue Angels Tuesday.

“We’re starting to learn to play a little better together. We’re starting to feel more comfortable with one another and getting some excitement,” said Baise.
