The Coaches and I couldn’t be prouder of this hard working group of athletes. I want to give a shoutout to Coach Mo who went above and beyond to help get this team ready for Sectionals. To achieve success, you need to set the bar high. Mo was instrumental in getting this young team prepared and motivated to get the job done.
Always proud. Go Slicers!
