“I was like, I’m going to go for it because it’s the last point,” Durham said.
“As far as that game with Sheri, we try and impress upon that because we were just hitting all day, you mix shots up, not only do you score the point, but you keep the defense where you want them,” Jett said. “She dinked over that triple block one time, which was wide open, on the next shot I told her, ‘You’ve got to go to the side now, because I’m sure their coach was watching’ and sure enough they crashed on her and she goes up with an open hand and they crashed and she went that way and there was nobody near her.”
Adewumi was just glad to contribute.
“They were double blocking me and triple blocking me, and it took a little adjusting to because I never really expected it, but Jett is just an amazing coach, like he really kept me in it because I felt like I was having a bad game because I didn’t really adjust and I started to adjust to it and I felt good,” she said.
She also feels good about this team.
“If I’m going to be honest, this team is a different team then when I went sophomore year, the energy is just like crazy,” Adewumi said. “I believe they are like a family. I’m going to be so sad when the season ends and I think that is our key as long as we keep each other up and we keep that momentum, then nobody can stop us because we fight and that’s what we do every day in practice, we fight for every point and every ball.”
Jett is taking his fourth team to the final four, the first two lost in the semis and last year’s 17-3 squad fell in the finals.
“I don’t care if it’s Fort Hill or Smithsburg, they are both very good, so we are just going to try to open up our bag of tricks because they have a lot of experience over there,” he said.
Freshman Ward is just happy to be going for the first time.
