There was a tremendous improvement with every individual on the varsity team, leading to the team being very competitive and very fun to watch. Each of the girls contributed with her own special role and each had her own special moments to bring about the team's success. Thanks to the team managers, Melanie Hallstein and Rachel Mackensen, for all that they did throughout the year.

Thanks to the girls, to Coach Lau, and to Coach Sydow for the memorable season!

Coach Lau writes in the Immanuel Daily Bulletin:
"On behalf of our team, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for the awesome fans we had this season. I attended the regional final in Chippewa on Saturday and you put their crowds to shame. We loved playing for you and wished we could have kept playing. Congratulations also to the girls in our program this season. All three teams fared well, with the varsity girls finishing with a 7-2 conference record, one point away against Alma to winning their 4th consecutive conference title. Great season!!"
