Season Summary

This season was awesome. We rallied with the top teams and finished the season with stellar play. We took a game from the Penn State University Athletic Conference’s (PSUAC’s) No. 2 ranked Penn State Brandywine. Leadership was the key to this success.

We had talented team members to run our offense and all was going great until illness set in and our dreams of playoffs were just out of our reach. All the players on the team had to make some changes and play in different spots, but the team really rose to the occasion. This did take a lot away from our offense and we lost some very close matches. The highlight came at the end of the season when we recovered from illnesses and injuries, our team’s hard work came together as we nearly beat the No. 2 team to get into the playoffs. No, we did not win the match, but we won a game and that left us with the sweet feeling of victory of one game. That game also let us know we can compete with the best in the division.

The teamwork and team bonding was a result of the shared meals, ice cream, group hikes, and team building activities. I appreciated the hard work and dedication of the team throughout the season. I know they appreciated the hard work they put forth when they saw the results and became more competitive.
