To have a lot of great players on the field and a team to go to makes me feel really comfortable. I love everyone on the team, they are all really good. I want to say thanks to Brianna Myrick for being one of the most supportive teammates on the field and Bailey Hobson who is an amazing leader. I really love my teammates!” Jessica Fitzwilliam (‘19) said.

“My favorite memory was definitely winning league and becoming close with my team. I enjoyed winning league just because it was my fourth year winning. I’ve won league all four years of high school which was really cool. Also, being a leader was really cool and being able to have underclassmen look up to me. And just being there for me team was really cool. I enjoyed being a leader.” Nicole Williams (‘16) said.
