“Qualifying for the Tournament of Champions is a testament to how hard the team works and the amount of effort they put in during the season and on their own. We started off slow getting used to the oil pattern in the first game, adjustments were made and we battled and competed in games 2 and 3. I am proud of everyone in the program for their accomplishments this season.”
