2017 Fall Opportunities
LIGHTNING HOLD END OF SEASON BANQUET
The Lightning put the finishing touch to an entertaining season Wednesday, April 5th, at the annual post season banquet. The coaches spoke about the tremendous leadership provided by the seniors and the effort brought by the team. This group was gritty, grinders, and never gave up. Each senior gave a nice talk about their favorite memories, advice for the underclassmen, and gave thanks to the many people who helped them get where they are today. The class of ’17 provided a great example for the rest of the team, and are now leaving it to a new group of leaders to carry on the tradition.
The awards were handed out with several of the players recognized. Winning the awards were:
