We are so young that every time we play, I can see our players getting more and more comfortable on the court and with each other.

We're really excited about Renee joining our team. She's a great all-around player who will add experience to our outside hitters. I think she can have an immediate impact with her leadership as well as her competitive instincts and I think she is already a player with great technique and knowledge of the game.

Anytime we get to play in the spring, it is nice because we get to practice certain things and see different playing styles across the net. Our players left with a good feeling and I think it was a productive weekend for us.
