Coach Boudreau has been coaching for many years but over the past 5 I have seen the quality of her athletes change tremendously. Her team this year looks amazingly strong and will find their way to the top. Her daughter graduated last year and many thought she would retire from coaching. However, she continues to lead her athletes with greater difficulty and stamina to find their way to the floor at State

Their current record is 17-9, 6-1 in region play, and they just finished runner up last weekend in the top Diamond Division of the Morgan County Bulldog Classic against all large classification public schools.
