On September 28th at a pep rally, Coach Brynn Nix recognized Anslee Finch with a plaque for earning her 1000th career kill in the Geneva County 1st Invitational Tournament on September 15, 2018. Coach Nix says, ” This is a goal that Anslee and I talked about setting for her during her 10th grade year. In the beginning of her senior year I noticed that she was at 853 kills. So we discussed it and talked it over with her teammates and decided that we were all going to work hard to help Anslee achieve this goal. Little did I know…she was setting a school record as well.”
Anslee is a well known for her hard work, dedication, and determination across all sports at High School. And Coach Nix was very honored to present her with this award.
Now Anslee is well over the 1000 kill mark, and you can see her in action on our live stream or video on demand!
