Although the Lacombe Generals have seen their share of wins this season, Jeff McInnis, General Manager of the Lacombe Generals believes that they are coming out of a low point in the season.
He believes that the Generals have seen better participation in recent weeks and that in the past, other commitments were in the way of team bonding.
Jeff McInnis hopes that this shift in commitment and participation continues as the team prepares to take the Allan Cup which will be hosted by Lacombe in April 2019.
