Willmar graduates three players from this year’s team. Comparatively, the Cards graduated 24 players in the previous two years.
“We have a lot of potential coming up,” Brown said. “We’re a young team and we’re excited to see where we can go in the future. We’ll definitely miss our seniors but we’re happy it’s only three. This is a really hard-working group of girls and in time it will come back and we’ll be on top again.”
