Some Of Our Team Memories

I knew our season was going to be awesome when
"We fought so hard as a team to beat all the teams that we did throughout our season. We stuck together and played harder than we have ever played in close matches. The satisfaction of winning as a team and knowing that we all worked together to get there was awesome."

My most vivid memories are:
 "Staying as a team the whole way through. finishing out the season WAY ahead of where we started."
"Even when we were down we always pulled it together and came back and never gave up.  that's something i loved about our team cause most teams aren't capable of doing that. "
"I always looked forward to practice because my team became my best friends."
"Showing up to the blizzard practice when we could have easily said that we couldn't go, never having any team drama, everyone liked each other, and always having smiles on our faces, even at 7 AM :)

Final Thoughts On Our Season

 "Having a unified team is never luck.  Such a team occurs only when everyone is working together to ensure that trust, commitment and dedication are never compromised. "

Thank you parents and players for an incredible season!

Two Years Later

From one of the girls:  June 10, 2012!
"Our team this season doesn't seem to have any passion or heart we aren't bonded on the court But, I watched you guys, and it looked like you were having so so so much fun!  It just really made me miss your coaching. Liked it so much. Gussie Ava and Erin and I have all talked about how much we miss you and those teams
