“We were challenged in our last three games in different ways,” she said. “It really forced the girls to dig deep and learn different ways to win and compete. I often forget how young of a group that we have this year, we’ve put a lot of responsibility on some of their plates and they seem to rise to the occasion. I am so proud of all of our girls for their perseverance and hard work.”
