Quotable: In an interview Coach Crowe said “Our goals are to stay healthy, win our Christmas tournament in Daytona, and win our 3rd Region Championship and a State Championship.” When asked what she expected from her seniors Coach Crowe said “Having 4 seniors we expect great leadership from every aspect. They all have different roles and are very committed to making this year one to remember.”
