In speaking at the signing ceremoney, Golden Eagles girls soccer coach Darrell Ivey said, "These girls have worked very hard the past four years with four district championships, four regional championships, and they've been to the Final Four four years in a row, so that's a tough thing to do. To get to the state final this year was awesome for them too."
