“… This year has definitely been a year to remember. We started virtual practices April 2020 and didn’t get to compete until May 2021. We didn’t even know if competition was going to be possible this year, but these girls never stopped working. We have practiced via zoom, sending in videos, outside, and of course inside….one thing about these girls is that they truly love the sport.”
“… Once we found out a competition date our number one goal was to HAVE FUN and make good memories with this team after this crazy year. We have 5 seniors on the squad that have put so much into the program. We wanted to do everything we could to give them a great ending to their 4 years.”
“… This past weekend we competed in the KHSAA Regional Championship. We won the super large division and advance to state on May 14. Only 1/4 of the Super Region 8 actually competed this year. Just making it this far this year is an accomplishment and shows how dedicated these girls are!”
