Overall, Coach Cher Greving was pleased with the improvement made throughout the season. "The girls were always eager to get into the gym to learn something new. They were never complacent with their play, but always strived to improve themselves in all facets of the game. A 4th place finish in tournament is nothing to hang our heads about; however, the girls expect more and were disappointed with the losses on the day. I would like to thank the fans for their support throughout the season and thank you to Coach Jones, Coach Waters and Mr. Kirkendall for their help and support on league tournament day which was a long one! Said Coach Greving.
