"Today was really a tale of two halves, 9-1 Limestone, 8-3 Mount Olive," said head coach Grant Kelam.  "This team played their hearts out and left it all on the field, and that is all we ask of them.  We know how talented we are, we know how athletic we are, and if we keep improving as a program at this rate, there will be many more championships to play in.  The 2019 class of seniors were an unbelievable group of people to be around for four years.  I cannot even begin to say how much they have taught me, impacted me as well as the team, and inspired everyone to be the kind of people those young women are.  I will miss this class beyond words."
