“Words can't describe how proud I am of my group,” Coach Yhann Plummer said of his team. “We beat teams with 30-40 athletes. The best part is that the team also performs at the top of their class with a team GPA of 3.5.”
Plummer also credits Lady Knight Coach Younne Reid’s hard work and dedication for helping the Lady Knights compete at such a high level.
