CHELAN - The last few hours have been a blur.  I have been replaying the match against Kings in my head over and over again.  We had a great first set but fell short 25-27, we had the worst set of our season next 16-25. Then something amazing happened.  The girls came together, played without fear, and were able to win the next two sets.  Going in to the fifth set we played freely. Each player did their job, trusted in each other and gave all they had.  We were able to win the fifth set 17-15 to win the championship.  A few words come to mind when I think of this team: trust, family, effort, never give up mentality, chemistry and resilience to name a few.
