Comments from Head Coach Jade Koch:
We had a tough pool. All but one of the teams had a winning record. It was a great opportunity for our team to face some fierce competition. Through out the morning, our play was very inconsistent. In the matches where we struggled, the girls played sluggish and exhibited little emotion. The girls were struggling to put everything together.
