COACH'S COMMENTS

“... It was a tough loss, It’s hard to lose the way we did. Very proud of this team and all that they accomplished. This year has been very exciting and it was a pleasure to be apart of it.”

“... It’s always tough to see the seniors' high school careers come to an end. Brittany, Keyerah and Ciana played a huge role to the success of this team.”

“... Most people don't realize the time and hard work that goes into a season. It takes all year to put a team together that can compete for a regional title. God really blessed us this year!”
