This meet was the end of the season for most of the team, but Emily Evans secured a spot for the State Championship meet with Reavis getting a wildcard spot with a strong chance of playing the State Championship meet on the 15th.

“I am really excited I made State this year and I’m really proud of myself that I’ve worked this hard to make it here,” Evans said. “To get ready for the tournament. I am trying not to put stress on myself because I play worse when I have a ton of pressure.”

The team themselves had a good day taking fourth place and redeeming themselves after their 7th place finish at Metros. The team finished off their season on a good note and the girls are very satisfied about their performance.

“The team did the best that they could,” Reavis said. “We did good compared to everyone else that was there.”
