Coach Braziel states, "We cannot express how proud & excited we are for this group of athletes. As coaches we have watched this group work day in & day out since June with the goal of making it back to the playoffs. It brings me so much joy to see all that work pay off. From the leadership of our upperclassmen who contributed to 8 of those wins, or the bright future we saw in 6 matches where a sophomore or freshman contributed to the win. The Pack truly came together for an overall great team win!"
