I’m so used to it because I grew up watching my dad play.” Williams has high hopes for the next two years of her high school career as she is working toward being captain her senior year.  Williams is very proud of herself, but especially her teammates for pulling together and coming out on top this week. “After winning these last two games, it motivates me to want to do better and try harder.”
