This Invitational was full of great competition against some of the best teams in the state in Division I & II. I am very proud of these young ladies for their efforts this weekend against the toughest players they have ever faced. I am especially proud of my JV girls because they flat out battled the Varsity players they faced this weekend and didn't make it easy for any of them. Overall, this was a great challenge for my team this weekend and one that they stepped up for. This was excellent preparation for moving forward and getting ready for Paradise Valley and Barry Goldwater on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Hopefully we can keep building on this momentum and success that the girls have and make a big run for State!
