Also at the banquet, PR-B coach Erica Norman commented: “For my second year as head coach, I was absolutely blessed to have a team of girls like the ones standing here tonight,” she said. “From day one, I saw these girls put forth the effort to have a successful season as well as an enjoyable season together.”
Coach Norman, whose squad finished 13-12 overall, added that her players had fun this season.
“There were many times that these girls were having so much fun on the court they made me smile from ear to ear,” she said. “That was my ultimate goal as their coach this year - to see them smile while playing a sport they love. There were many moments during practices and games that I was proud of them as a team for not only their effort, but also their ability to see positive in all things, and smile.”
Norman closed by wishing her players success in the future.
“I want to wish all the girls best of luck in their next adventure, whatever that may be,” she said. “Seniors, I wish all of you luck in all you do from this point forward. I am positive that your future holds great things.”
