Greg Allen Quote
"It's been almost four months since we've played in a tournament, so we're ready to get the spring season underway. The girls have worked extremely hard during the offseason and have gotten mentally and physically stronger. We've have some really quality practices and I'm seeing a very relaxed and confident team that's ready to take this program to a new level."
