“Our Spartans team played hard and proved to be worthy opponents, and it’s tough to end the season on a less-than-positive note,” said Kathleen Tulloch, coach. “I am very happy with the team. They played well, they had some wins and they suffered some losses, but overall they maintained a great attitude and had fun.”
