Head Coach Trenton Hassell stated, “I’m so proud of the work the girls put in this year. It was a new and difficult year due to COVID and the schedule we asked them to play.”

Hassell also sang the praises of CCS parents, noting how supportive they were of the staff and players throughout the season.
In a year greatly impacted by COVID-19, CCS President Dr. Brad Moser is especially proud of the way Head Coach Trenton Hassell and his coaches navigated the circumstances.
Moser noted, “It’s always an honor to earn a championship, but the way we did it this year is nothing short of astounding. Coach Hassell managed COVID protocols to near perfection while flawlessly orchestrating an exciting and memorable championship effort.”
