As a Supporter’s Group in light of recent events we would like to make it clear that the Spirit Squadron will continue to support our team and our players. These athletes deserve the opportunity to shine, and we will be behind them every step of the way. This offeason has been emotionally taxing on us in losing such quality people/players, but we wish them the best of luck in their careers. As for the current and future roster of the Spirit, these women will continue to have the respect and support they deserve. We aren’t going anywhere. You are still our team, this is still our town, and it will always be our time.
