End of an Era: Four seniors like no other

Is it a group of athletes? What about a band of brothers or sisters?
What if someone told you there was a group of seniors on the Harmony Grove senior girls basketball team that had more than most teams could ever hope for?

Of course, everyone wants to win it all in their last year. That is a given. But not winning it all and knowing that a team has given it its all in every game of the final season speaks louder than a title or any hardware could ever scream.
