Coach’s Outlook for 2021: “During the pandemic, we continued to meet and complete our workouts over zoom from the closure all the way until what would have been the end of our season.  They were able to stay positive and make the most out of an otherwise gloomy situation.  We continued to build relationships which we are continuing on to our 2021 season.  Since then, we’ve been able to get plenty of work in during the winter.  The girls have been resilient and shown flexibility in dealing with the ever-changing guidelines and situations.  We are looking forward to a great season with a really talented group of upperclassmen with a mixture of very eager and high-energy underclassmen.”
