“I cannot express how proud I am of these girls. We switched up a few things prior to the game and the girls executed spectacularly. This is a massive win for us for sure. We have a big week ahead of us so we can enjoy the moment now but will have to get right back at it tomorrow as we prepare for our upcoming matches.” -Coach Kalen
