Senior Night was emotional and HUGE with six of our team being celebrated tonight. Ali Elwart played 4 years as a varsity player, Brianna and Lindsey Burton, Breece Phillips, Saydie Starnes, and Rilee Szczesniak all played two years on varsity. Everyone played an important role on the team and will greatly be missed! These girls have had a big impact on our program setting the tone for how the program needs to look as a team and leaders. Coach Loftis said, "It was an honor to coach this team and group of senior who are leaders in and out of the classroom. Anything and everything they were asked to do, they did with a smile and hard work!" From up north to Madison and everything in-between we worked hard! #doyourjob
