How did your junior season go?

My junior season went very well from an individual standpoint. I broke many school records on the offensive side of the ball. From a team standpoint we didn't achieve the goals we strived for and that was a big disappointment. We made it to the sectional semifinal and had the chance to win but just didn't pull it out.
