“I think that is a great tournament to start our season off with,” Lady Fox senior Alicia York said. “This year another team joined the tournament, allowing us to play an extra game. The entire team is ready to begin play. We are working hard and getting better every day.”

Fellow senior Lucendia Adams said she’s excited about this season.

“If we continue to work hard every practice, it should be a very successful season,” Adams said. “The work ethic of my teammates is great. Everyone comes into practice wanting to achieve our best.”
