“I am happy with where this team is headed.  We continue to improve every game.  I told the girls at the beginning of the season our line-up may change from game to game and that has happened. We continue to try and find a line-up that can be work as a unit.  Even though our record is 2-9, there are several losses where we were the better team. We just have to continue to grow and improve and we will be in a good place towards the end of the season. We have a difficult schedule and play high-quality teams so we have to work hard every day in practice and games.” Coach Teresa Ruppert said of the tournament.
