Coach Bambi Hawkins,

Way to go, ladies! I also want to be sure that Savanna Slough gets mentioned for six kills out of the middle hitting position (against Cairn) with one of the best percentages on the team. Yes, one of our middle hitters is 5’5″. And Peyton Homan added another eight kills, even though she has to wait until the third rotation of each set for her opportunity to swing in the middle hitter position! Abbigale Mingus continued to be a steady force with the unexpected power that she whips the balls down, and most of her kills come when she is in a back-row position. Everyone stepped up to do their part as the team chose to push through for a win.

We’ll never share your email with anyone else.
