COMMENTS FROM HEAD COACH “This weekend was a great learning experience. We played some teams that we haven't seen before this season and we beat them on day one. It not only proved to our players, but to the other schools that we are a new team and we can compete with anyone,” said head coach Colleen Cashman-McSween. “Round one got us off to a great start as we shot close to a program best. Unfortunately, we weren't able to play our final round because of the rain, yet I still believe that we gained some valuable experience by playing against such great competition.”
