“The way the girls started to see each other on the court and their attitudes to adapt to new playing styles was great to see,” said Thilmony.

The relatively young team worked well to build and secure strengths with their on court plays thought the season.
“Our team consisted of a senior who put an enormous amount of effort in to have her team work together this season. Two juniors that picked up the intensity to a new level. Two sophomores that gained great experience and valuable confidence this season. And four freshman who are eager to begin building the future of our program,” explained Thilmony.
When asked of their post season on-court action, Thilmony said her girls got off to a slow start but finished strong in the fourth period against Eureka their final game.
