All-Tourney Team

We had 3 players voted to the all-tourney team. With 15 of our players all contributing to the championship, if you knew 3 players would be all-tourney, you could successfully argue that several of our other players would be equally deserving. It was definitely a "team championship."

Tai Peachey, Jamie Johnson, and Jessica Howard were all selected all-tourney. And Jessica was selected as the tourney MVP. As coaches and as teammates, we were all happy to see these three recognized as individuals.

On Tuesday after our game, I commented to the team in the lockeroom about Tai and Jamie that it never matters if they have scored 2 points or 15 points-- they are the same after games. They never get wrapped up in their individual success or get down if they don't have a game that brings them individual glory. And the same could be said for Jessica Howard. She was the same in the lockeroom after hitting 11 threes as she was hitting 1 three vs. Effingham.

As seniors, this "team first" attitude has become contagious to our team. Congratulations on the individual recognition- you deserve it!!
