“We’ve got half our varsity team in quarantine, so it’s been an emotional week,” Lake City coach Michelle Kleinberg said. “We had a lot of girls that hadn’t played a varsity match, but they stepped up and played as hard as they could. Our younger girls had a chance to step up, and they did a great job. They gave it their all.”
