They Said It

"It was a very hard fought battle. This weekend was good for us, it challenged us in many ways and we saw areas we need to work on. You want to play as tough of competition as possible, and we really found some evenly matched opponents. Now our challenge is winning those games. The MIAA is so competitive so we need to be able to put away games." - Head Coach Ashley Bingaman
