Prescott coach Bobbi Yoder said, “For Teacher Appreciation Night, our Seniors and the Varsity team choose to honor/recognize Jen Hawley (Tabitha Bryner), Diane Ryan (Nicole Raiss) and Trent James (Varsity Team) for their impact on them in the classroom and beyond. Our two Seniors, Tabitha Bryner and Nicole Raiss, were also celebrated tonight by their teammates, families and friends for their accomplishments as well as all of the blood, sweat and tears poured into this Badminton program over the years. These two young ladies are amazing and it has been an honor and privilege to coach them over the years and they will be dearly missed by all next year.”
