“We played all of our seniors almost all night tonight.  They are such an incredible group of girls and they earned this win tonight.  Although it’s not our normal lineup and we all didn’t play our normal spots, these girls played their hearts out.  I am truly blessed to have them as players.  I have no idea what our program is going to do without them next season.  Erin (Fagan) and Maddie Shank set our offense perfectly tonight and our hitters seemed like they were happy with their sets.
