Members of the team are as follows: Amanda Wynn, Grace Blatney, Ashely Grewenig, Ally Alvarado, Destiny Clark, Laurel Loftin, Katie Luksa, Nicole Alebesun, Hannah Anderson, Jacey Gartner, Bri Stunda, Charli Uber, Brooke Hertzenberg, Amaya Bolanos, Lanisha Taylor, Maddy Gubser, Shelby Henry, Madi Prince, Sami Havemann, Abbey Rowe, Kameryn Granados, Skyler Carrell, Emily Noles, Cheyanne Parker, Daon Acosta, Jamie Derringer, Brittani Harvey, Tori Green, Bailey Moss, and Kimberley Knight.
Mr. Tommy Johnson, Oak Ridge High School principal, introduced coach Sarah Parker to the Board.
“These girls are excellent members of our community not just on the field or on a competition mat, but also in the classroom. We do great work outside of the school and just found out that we are ranked in the top ten teams to raise money for St. Jude’s Hospital, and this year we raised over $16,000,” shared Ms. Parker.
After presenting the team with a plaque, Trustee John Husbands congratulated them on their accomplishments and spirit of giving back to the community.
