“I can’t be more pleased with the season. We went 10-0 in the district it was pretty big. It’s been a few years since I’ve done that.
Humprhy said that Trice truly deserved being Player of the Year.
“Tori deserved MVP. She has worked her tail off. Whatever I ask of her, she’s going to do. She works and plays with her heart the whole time.”
