“We are proud of the way our team improved and competed at the NCA camp,” head coach Jen Benson stated in a news release. “We are looking forward to a fantastic 2014-’15 season of cheering at LHS athletic events.”

Besides team honors, Holbrook and senior Olivia Kennedy earned the prestigious All-American Award for showcasing strong skills, spirit, technique and leadership. Holbrook also took home the Individual Leadership Award.
