Most exciting match this season
Our favorite match this season was against Cedar Rapids at the River Classic. We were a hundred points down and were able to come back and put the game into overtime. Chris got the last question, and we won the game.
Favorite verse from the material Matthew 28:20, because it is the last verse us seniors memorized for quiz.
