“We are obviously disappointed that we did not make it back to the final four,” Harrell said. “The ladies played their heart out tonight, but our shots were just not falling for us, but we have had a good year with only six losses. Our seniors, Lindsey Duke, Kelsey Harrell and Perra Harrell provided tremendous Christian leadership for us this year and throughout their careers here at Grace.”
