Cullman’s Hannah Bircheat

Stats: Played 60 minutes 

Result: South 3, North 1 

Series: North leads 14-3-1 

Quotes of Note: “I had a lot of fun, even though we were down. My time here I’ll always remember my whole life. I made real good close friendships with some of these girls, and after I leave I’m definitely going to keep in contact with them. Not going to lie, I did get tired out pretty easily (laughs), but I had a lot of fun. I feel like I played the best I could with the position I was given. I didn’t play the position I’m used to playing, but I felt like I gave it my all.” — Bircheat

Result: North 3, South 0

Quotes of Note: “First off, I want to give the glory to God for letting me train and be able to be out here. It felt good to win and get the shutout. I think we played really well. We had a good group of guys, and it was a good time. I’m glad I got to be out here.” — Gerding
