I'm proud of the girls for winning the MHSA/Stockman Bank Sportsmanship award for the Class B girl's state tournament. This is a true testament to the girls and how they play the game. These girls represent our school and community in a positive manner night in and night out. Having others recognize our girls for playing the game the right way is awesome! To say I'm proud of this award is an understatement! The girls truly did earn this award and I'm happy they got the recognition they deserve!” said Head Coach Jordan Overstreet.
