The seeds say it was an upset, but it was pretty clear to me that it was just a case of "the better team won". . . Courtney Haring sent a message early that the net was the Pioneers domain and there would be no easy points for the Markers. Suzanne Hesse added some strong hitting, and Jordan Berry came up with some stellar defensive plays. The bench was excited from the beginning and contributed with much-needed enthusiasm. It's fun to watch the bench when they just can't help themselves, and they come flying off their chairs. I LOVE that about sports. . .
The Pioneers try to claim the district title tomorrow night (Wed. Oct 27th) as they take on the top-seeded St. Joseph's Angels. It was just a couple short years ago that the Pioneer Boy's Basketball team found themselves facing the #1 seeded powerhouse Webster Groves Statesmen, and we all remember how that one turned out!! : ) A big crowd would certainly help, so head over for the 7:00pm contest and be ready to go NUTS!
Ladies, go get 'em!!!
