Coach Cole could hardly contain his pride when describing the season. “Most of the girls have been playing together since fourth grade, so it is nice to see them stick together,” Cole said later. “The great thing about this team is that they always cheer each other on. Nobody cares who scores. This is a great team in every sense of the word. I am very proud of all of them.” (Courtesy Photo)
