Back Row, Lillie Patton, Jim East, Lillie Norred, Anya Polomis, Lynn Pearson, Gracie Glass, Mary Stewart Mullin. Front Row, Gracie Hemmings, Abbie Dillon, Abigail Pitts, Sammi Rice, Betsy Blanchard.

It’s been an emotional year for the team as their coach, Mary Lynne Cumiskey, has been unable to coach in her usual fashion due to her daughter Rudi’s recent health issues. But it did not stop their dedication or drive as boys coach Jim East stepped in to fill her role and lead the team to victory.

Mary Lynne was always there in spirit, as the girls never failed to include her in their pictures. And on this particular occasion, due to the proximity of the match, she was able to slip away from Rudi’s side at Emory and drove 30 minutes just to speak to and hug each girl on her team before the competition began.

Such an incredible coach and an incredible team! Congratulations to all of them!
