COACH'S COMMENTS

“For most of the year, we started four sophomores and a freshman. We are only graduating two of the fourteen players on the roster this year. Our entire starting lineup will be back next year. I was proud of the way the girls competed this year. After going 5-24 last year, it was a major turnaround. Part of that turnaround was adding a phenomenal freshman in Amiah Hargorve. The other part was the experience that the now sophomores gained as freshman at the varsity level last year. We held teams to 35 points a game on defense.” – Coach Seiger Shurtz
