“I’m very proud of these three young ladies,” said Lady Patriot coach Amy Hendrichovsky. “Northwest was a great fit for all three, academically and athletically.  The work these ladies have put in through their career has paid off, but I can proudly speak on behalf of the effort and work I’ve witnessed them give the last year has been fun to watch.  I’m excited to see them represent the ‘Burg at the next level and wish them all the best.”
