The Ste. Genevieve Dragons finished their season with a stellar record of 20-6 (8-2 in district). The Dragons made it all the way to the district title game, but they came up one win shy of clinching the title. They lost to the Park Hills Central Rebels, three sets to one. This Ste. Gen team was a great squad who battled and played a dominant style. They also won the Conference Tournament Championship. The Dragons had four seniors who were able to help the team win and pass on experience to their teammates.
Number three Maci Reynolds was one of those seniors who were able to lead the Dragons to such a fantastic season. Reynolds played big minutes for the Dragons all year and was able to fill up the stat sheet. She played her position, the defensive specialist, and played it well. She led the team with 273 digs. That was over 100 more than the second nearest player. She was also heavily relied upon to return serves, with 358 serve receptions. She also had 125 serving points, 15 aces, 21 assists and four kills.
