"I'm proud of the girls," NP coach Bobby Holden said. "I'm so grateful to be the coach of a team that worked so hard for every game and accomplished so much. The five seniors (Amy Hilton, Jennifer Roberts, Alyssa Mouzin, Kristin Wagner, and Lauren Joray) are great girls that lead a team through an amazing year. They accomplished 12 great wins, an undefeated HHC championship, and a unforgettable season they can be proud of forever. I will not forget their dedication, inspiration and leadership as they did such a great job taking the team through a very successful season. Thank you girls for a great season.
