After the girls JV game every single player stayed to watch.

While the game was well-rounded with the top scores, girls and boys team manager Arianna Holiday was really happy with the rest of the team, “Even though not everyone scored the amount Peyton did, they all helped us win the game with different things such as just cheering on the bench to keep the team hyped,” said Holiday.
