After the win UHA head coach Faye Hendricks reflected on her emotions after the historical moment.

In recent years, after winning the district championship five years in a row, Hendricks explained how a loaded senior class was one of the keys to pushing through the final door of the region.

For a lot of UHA followers, a season like this would not come as a surprise, due to the way this program has been built up and the comprising of 9 seniors on the team. Coach Hendricks talked about that winning culture that she and her coaching staff have worked to instill.

A Senior, Sarah Peebles full of excitement, also shared her thoughts on the win
