“One of our goals every year is to win a region championship, and I’m just really happy for our girls and coaching staff that we were able to accomplish that goal,” Norcross head coach Jeff Cerneka said. “This group has worked extremely hard to get better each day, develop team chemistry and to stay focused, especially through all the crazy, weird and unique challenges that COVID has presented. I’m very proud of our camp. Also, we get the opportunity to continue our season a few more weeks. Nothing better than that.”
