Quoting Coach Diana Falar
Regarding the team:
"I feel our strength is our depth. Every event we go to we have to leave three or four very competitive players at home. Its unfortunate but it is very comforting to know the depth is there."
Falar on freshman Shayna Miyajima:
"Last week was Shayna's first trip and she played well. She kept her composure and I was very proud of her performance."
