"I am beyond proud of these ladies," Spence said. "Their grit, determination and hard work never cease to amaze me. They persevered all season, supporting our teams. At the TAPPS competition, they worked together to overcome many obstacles, and we really came together as a team with our late-night practices and bonding."


For the Division I Traditional Large Squads, Lindsay Bell ('20) made the first team; Kendall Pennington ('20), McKenna Rodriguez ('20) made second team and Emma Gunn ('21) and MayaLee Dobson ('21) were honorable mentions.
