  1. I’m impressed with all these young ladies! Way to go Como Park Lady Cougars for winning the Twin Cities Championship yet again for four years in a row but also that they went up against a fierce and outstanding competition Minneapolis South with the double dynamic duo the Hill sisters! All these young ladies have the potential, strength and agility of pure athleticism at its finest. My daughter is Makayla VanNett and she showed heart and true leadership and toughness playing through an injury and coming in clutch for her team. Above all I would say all these girls deserve a round of applause they are all phenomenal in every aspect! Way to go ladies keep up the great work and keep eating!!??
