We had 5 Seniors this year: Olivia Schaub, Jenna Balthazor, Arianna Mitchell, Jasmine Johnson, and Lauren Whaley. Thank you for everything you've done seniors.
We had a great season and ended with a record of 16-19 before Sub-Districts. Sub-Districts were on October 30, and we ended up losing to Sidney and barely missing the District cut-off for power points. Thank you for a wonderful season and all the hard work players, coaches and fans. We look forward to next season. Continue to practice and improve during the off seasons. This summer, we will continue our weights program and have open gyms. There will be a meeting towards the end of the school year to find out all of this information.
