The journey included the regular season, a Northern Ohio League crown and Division II sectional, district and regional championships.

It didn’t include a state trophy, as the magical season ended with a 3-2 loss to Beaumont Saturday in the finals.

Still, school officials and players talked about the experiences of reaching state both on and off the court.

Lady Truckers coach Angie Kalizewski, in her third season of leading the team, relayed Thank You’s to the players, parents, community, school officials, high school staff and all who helped in making the season so special.

“We had a tremendous year this year,’’ she said. “This group had so much fun. They made history and that says a lot.’’

Norwalk finished 27-3 and reached the state title match for the first time in school history, after being stopped in the semifinals in 1993 and 2002.

She then introduced the four captains — Kelli Weininger, Oakley Shane, Sam Obringer and McKenzie Hall.

They talked about the ups and downs of the season and thanked family, friends and community members for the support on the season.
