Running toward the ball, sophomore Ava Germany dribbles past her opponent. “It felt great to make it to state,” Germany said. “The games leading up were all games that had people biting their nails. It came down to the last minute in every playoff game it felt like. I think the biggest challenge our team faced during state was confidence. Everyone believed in us to win we just had to believe in ourselves and even with the result we got I believe we could have been more confident.”
