“I’m so proud of our fight today. The finals matchup was now the fifth time we played Harper Creek in two weeks and it’s hard to beat a team that many times in a row. We made it interesting at times but we didn’t give up and played great in set 2 and 3. It feels great to bring home some hardware. The girls deserved this today!” Coach Sundell
