The Glenburn win was a big one for three members of the Chargers team. Mariah Sharrow, Molly Simcox, and Sophie Peterson had never won a travel league game until today. They started at the 3/4 level, and after two years were still winless. It was good to get that first travel league game victory under their belt.
