The seniors are getting better and better as the year goes on and the core of three seniors (Haley Hoeksel, Kim and Mayer) are carrying us.
Were playing really strong defense. Weve seen it a bunch of times this year, if we get it done on the defensive end, the offense can take care of itself. Were getting more and more confidence on offense.
