When asked about the season senior captain Logan Blankenbaker responded with the following, “I feel like our season was beyond successful through all the adversity we faced as a team. We played day by day because that is all we were given and no matter our outcome in the end, this team became the closest this to a second family I’ve ever had. Luckily there is a ton of young talent and the drive each of these girls have will take them so far next year on and off the court! I am more than thankful that I had the opportunity to spend my high school career as a Bowman Bulldog!
