“I am very proud of all the girls,” remarked Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Jamie Greene. “It was a very long season as we started conditioning back in late January and making the playoffs put playing until early June. That gave all the girls a chance to get better and work hard. The girls making the All-State team did an excellent job in their positions leading the team to the playoffs. It shows hard work and teamwork by the girls pays off. They are already talking about next season and I can’t wait to see how far they go in 2022.”
