"We had another successful year in the record books, with some players reaching milestones, and our team reaching milestones in the history of Cannon Falls volleyball. But I am more impressed by the group of young ladies that I had the privilege to coach than I am about any score on the scoreboard," she continued. "I am so proud of their effort, their decisions, their teamwork and the pride that they have for their school. The six seniors that are moving on to bigger and better things next year are among the best of the best. I love them all dearly. They were truly a gift to coach."
