BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"I am incredibly proud of the way the girls competed today. Yesterday, against Randolph, it was a tough match for us after not playing for nine days, but it was great to bounce back and get back on track today against Regent and Hollins. We hope to improve each time we step on the court, especially as we get into ODAC play." -- Head Coach Ruthanne Duffy
