Copley takes on St. Mary’s Memorial to continue their quest for the crown. Waynesville and Summit Country Day will have the last match of the day and will be the final match to determine the final four.

Head coach Kelley Bricker with assistant coaches Sean Falkowski and Katelyn Shepherd are keeping the team focused with a winning mentality: one game at a time.
