Im confident in my team for these upcoming games against JD, since we know what we are up against,” said Scott. “The only issue since we have a large team, is all coming together as one, when we should be comfortable and ready to go. I’m hoping that this won’t bring us down, and that we will be coming home with dubs.”

“It’s a little bittersweet, like it’s all almost over, and that’s exciting because then I’m on to the next thing in life,” said Spurgeon. “But it’s also kind of sad because I’ve dedicated four seasons of my high school career to this team, and it’s going to be hard to say goodbye.”
