Coaches Comments:
“Our team had an absolutely memorable season. In general, the best team by far in my 4 years as head coach. It would be hard to describe how proud I am of these girls. They fought hard in all 36 matches this year. In the end we beat at team with 2400 kids (Katella) and lost to a team with 2700 (Summit), 10 times our size. David does not always win but we gave Goliath a good scare! I want to thanks my seniors Taylor Sanders, Kira Shultz, Callie Mowat and Tatum Sandvigen for many years of great play and leadership. May the 4 winds blow you safely home. ”
