They posted a school record 24 game win streak and represented their school and commu- nity in a positive light no matter where they played. For head coach Jim Sullivan and his assistantcoaches, Lisa Butler and Charles Isom, it was a sea- son to cherish and remember. The se- niors provided invaluable leadership skills and set the behavioral tone of the team.
