But with a handful of the middle schoolers being fairly injury prone, and the team not possessing much depth, the decision was made by parents, AD Leach, and first year Head Coach Pierson to discontinue the season. It sounds like there was every intention to have a season and Coach Pierson did everything he could to assemble and train a team. But ultimately they felt that the girls would not be a safe position with the players they had to move forward.
Disappointing timing for other schools, but a just a very difficult situation to navigate for their program. I do believe there were 18 players in the program last year. Most of them young.
