Head Coach Jynne Stowe had this to say about the winning day, “We are blessed to coach kids who bought into what we were doing as coaches and who were willing to rise to a level of excellence we set for them. These kids have pushed their bodies and their minds beyond what they believed was possible. They have represented Shannon and represented Christ and have competed with integrity, determination and strength.  This is why I am at Shannon...thank you all!”
