Not the first day that the local teams wanted, but there's still some hay to be made. Finish strong Reece, Andrew and Spencer. Give your teammates at each school something to strive for next season.

Congrats to Reece on another state title. Tough loses for Andrew and Spencer in their championship matches. Hopefully it will make them hungrier for next season.
