BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Overall I was very pleased with the efforts our team put forth this weekend. There were multiple strong performances after only a little bit of rest from practice last week. I think this meet will give us the confidence we need to finish out the last half of our season and go into ODAC Championships ready to complete." -- Head Coach Margaret Parcell Bisnett
