"This is the second week of matches for our team. Playing in the Bob Jones tournament against NAIA and NCCAAI schools proved to be beneficial for sure. We came away from the weekend 2-2, placing us fourth overall. We are very pleased with our finish especially being such a young team and it being so early in the season. We have a week full of tough matches coming up and we look forward to seeing how they do against teams in our region this up coming weekend in Jacksonville, FL.," stated Head Coach Selina Slate.
