SA Inducts Twelve New Members into the Cum Laude Society

If there is such a thing as a good loss, this was it! NA is a quality team having gone undefeated in their section. They said that we were the best team they played all season. That said, some of our players did not play up to their expectations, but we still had a good showing, earning their respect. It’s not a bad thing for a player to be unhappy with aspects of her game, however, this is the time to fine tune whatever is needed as we move forward into our Individual and our team WPIAL tournaments. I am very confident the girls will do so as they are highly motivated and a hard working group! Go Panthers!
