We played some tough teams (Midway and K C Lutheran) and the girls fought hard, handled pressure, and never gave up. We passed well, Lauren set well, and our hitting was on.

On Patriot Day, the Adrian Fire Department hosted a remembrance processional and ceremony to honor those who lost their lives during the brutal attacks on America on September 11, 2001. During the ceremony, veterans and those in the United States military were recognized for their bravery in keeping Americans safe and free. The ceremony was also a tribute to the men and women who work in emergency services each and every day.
A night to remember. A night to be grateful. A night to honor our hometown heroes. A night to hold close to our hearts as we said, “God Bless America.”
