Following the tournament, coach Kelly Cooksley commented, “I was really happy with the way we competed today. We had some returning players step into new roles this year and some varsity newcomers get their first action of the year. To come away with 3 medals and the team runner up trophy to arguably the best team in Class C I was very proud of how we competed in the tough humidity and heat.”
