"I am so very proud of my girls," said CHS Head Coach Kenji Otani. "The accomplishments of this team just keep stacking up; two girls on Academic All-State, the Region Trophy, the Region Medalist, 6 of the 8 top players and I don't think we are done yet. Impressive! I enjoy just watching them play. I can't wait for State."
