Hills will bounce back tighter and stronger


OTTUMWA — Dear Warrior Nation,

I never thought I would be writing this letter in February; things ended way too quick! The news this week from the NJCAA was shocking to us all and truly broke the hearts of our players and coaches. I hope that you all know that it’s a special opportunity for us to play and coach for YOU! We take great pride in trying to be the BEST and thought this team would be a National Champion on March 23. I’m truly sorry about the way that it ended but wouldn’t change a thing with how we handled things as a program, school or community! We have the BEST administration, fans and support in the country. I would have loved to coach this team deep into March, but it wasn’t meant to be. We will all bounce back from this and be tighter and stronger than ever. THE WARRIOR NATION IS A POWERFUL THING!


Your Coach,

Barret Peery
