On Tuesday, the Redhawks secured their first place spot in District 10-5A, when they beat the Independence Knights 3-0.

“The team exceeded my expectations against Independence,” head coach Eighmy Dobbins said. “The girls played confidently, but also were really calm and took the game one point at a time. It was really great to see them so composed.”

For junior Mary Jane McCurdy, beating Independence gives the team motivation heading into playoffs.

“We came in excited and very prepared for the game and did a good job of executing the scouting report,” McCurdy said. “This win is the biggest of the season. Sweeping our biggest competition gives us confidence and motivation going in to playoffs.

Beating Independence for the second time this season, the Redhawks were able to hold their spot at the top.

“This win definitely gives us good confidence going into our last district game,” Dobbins said. With this win, we are still first in the district going into the last week of play.”
