A Season I'll Never Forget

So I have spent the last 3 months with these girlies......
and these 2 crazy cats!! We had a great season, 27-4 and a 2nd place finish in the SPC. We fought hard and lost in 5 in the finals but I could not be more proud of my team and coaches.
Whitney and I before the final match began....we sure seem relaxed huh! :)
My team worked hard every practice and focused on their goals. They wanted to make it back to the DI Championship game and that is exactly what they did.
They may not have come away with the title but they came away with so much more.
A bond with their teammates that they will remember for the rest of their lives. These group of girls shared so many great times and lots of laughter!
They created friendships that will last a lifetime!
They stuck by each other and pushed each other through the tough days.
They even made sure to punk me every now and then. The picture above is from our last practice. We have t-shirts that are mandatory to wear to each practice....either navy or grey. They decided it would be funny to show up to their final practice in bright, neon shirts. You got to love em! :)
I couldn't have hand picked a better group of girls for my team. They are all beautiful inside and out and I am blessed to have had the opportunity to coach them. They got to take an ice bath after the semis....the water looks warm cause of the bubbles but it was nice and COLD!
They are very strong in their faith and look to the Lord for guidance. It is so refreshing to see teenage girls in this day and age strong in their walk with God. One of my Captains, Bailey said the prayer at dinner the first night and it made me teary eyed. Special moments I'll never forget.

I am so very proud of each of those young ladies. I am thankful for the effort that they gave me on a daily basis and for all the laughs. Thank you for a great season. Seniors, I love you tons and look forward to watching you grow as young adults. KIA KAHA!!!
