Thanks to Lisa Whealon, Ron Knapp, Michelle Searcy,  James Frazier, and Theresa Schafly for serving as judges and team support this weekend! We would not have been able to participate without their efforts. Thank you also to Colleen Richardson and Julia Meredith for supporting our team at practices before the tournament, and to the teachers who made room in their schedules for the team to perform in their classes this past week. Finally, our thanks to the middle school teachers who generously allow us to practice in their classrooms after school. We truly appreciate it!
