“I’m super proud of our kids for being able to bring home a trophy,” said Head Coach Sarah Manuel. “As a coach, as well as someone who competes, you always want to do better. Our kids put in all they could, that’s all I can ask for. I expect all of our kids to do their best and they did that. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of kids. These kids have made lifelong friendships because they worked hard together and had these experiences.”
