Fans show their appreciation for the Lady Seahawks at rally (PHOTOS) (VIDEO)

“Yeah, we have the medals and the T-shirts, and everybody’s going crazy, but I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet,” said senior Tayler Menard.

Fellow seniors Kati Trejo, Morgan Kennedy and Eve Heffron shared her opinion, and added that they all had dreamed of the moment but never quite believed it could happen.

“As most freshmen, you probably can’t really fathom coming this far,” said Trejo, who added later, “(But) the fans were going crazy (at the championship game) and with them there, there was no way we could have lost.”

Coach Kevin Craig said his Lady Seahawks took a fairly non-traditional route to the championship, but when all was said and done he couldn’t have been more impressed.

“When it got between the lines, they played as well as any team I’ve coached, and I’ve had some great teams,” he said. “It was all about winning. They didn’t care who scored.”

That mentality was rewarded again Friday as Heffron, Menard, Kennedy and Trejo presented the championship trophy to Walton County Superintendent of Schools Carlene Anderson in front of cheering fans.

“I am so proud of these girls I have been on the verge of tears — I’m holding them back now — because I’m so excited,” Anderson said. “ … I have just been waiting for this.”
