“I was proud of the team effort” said coach Rich Hammons. “This was the final home match for our eight seniors. Every senior finished in the top four of their division and helped lead us to this team win. It has been a blessing to coach these player, and watch as they developed into incredible young men and women. With district less than a month away, we certainly seem to be peaking at the right time. Each player showed a lot of heart and refused to quit, they pushed themselves and their opponents. This team is full of hard workers.”
