 “I’m really proud of what these girls were able to accomplish. Between battling nagging injuries and only having five girls on the team, we weren’t sure if we would be able to finish the season. But they were able to help each other stay healthy while still pushing to a fifth place finish at state. Not many will understand just how amazing that really is,” Coach Hale said.
