"What a great way to start the season. It was hot out there and the girls hung in there and had some good performances. We had a freshman Charlotte Ledy playing in her first varsity tournament and also Shannon Tangney, Devin Mulligan, Lexi Speicher and Reese Rupert who are sophomores, playing in their first varsity tournament," Coach Williams-Hoak said. "It was also great to get 3 players on the All-Tournament team. This year's team is very exciting to be part of. We have 23 players on the team and so much talent and potential. Also, the girls are a great group to be around."
