It was an exciting night for the Streaks. I am so happy for our players who have been involved on the varsity for 2, 3, and 4 years and have not won a Regional title before.
It was not pretty but there were so many efforts to be proud of. Jessica Lieber and Tai Peachey both drained threes to keep us in the lead. Jamie Johnson was our main offense in the first half. Mickey Rodriguez got a key deflection and steal. Myra Diggins got the big defensive board to ice the game. Sadee Hamilton was Sadee. It goes on and on-- a total team effort. But I am especially proud of Megan Young. She had a tough week with illness but there was never any doubt she would answer the bell. Tonight we had a bad shift going and I turned to the next five who would be going in and said they needed to have a strong shift. After I left, I heard Megan "getting in her groups face." She let them know that their shift was going to turn things around-- and they did. Great leadership!!!
Can you believe the huge Streaks crowd that showed up-- THANK YOU! It was like old times when we had probably 4 times as many fans as Sterling. Win or lose, that makes our kids feel special!
