Absolutely amazing....This team not only competed with fierce determination and skill but made friends with so many teams and coaches along the way. It takes a true champion to have others cheer for you during your performance and to be liked and respected by your competition....I was and am proud to know these coaches and athletes and lucky to have shared in their journey. Time to pay it forward!
