They got first place, which varsity player Addison Williams says was “super uplifting and exciting because we’ve never won this particular tournament before.” She described how these athletes put in lots of time and energy to their sport, and have been playing together for many years. As a result, the varsity team has great team chemistry, which is a heavily contributing factor to the great season they’re having.
