“Our season is going very well,” Sprayberry noted. “We started being really competitive with bigger schools but always fell short. Now, we are getting to our area matches, and are very competitive and focused. If the players stay focused, we will have a chance to be very competitive and successful during the postseason. I am so proud of each of the girls on the team. They have worked hard from the first practice to now.”
