“We have been clicking well with each other,” Lady Warrior Sarah Rhiel said. “We have gotten used to everyone’s playing style, allowing us to have some great chances.”

The Lady Warriors’ confidence continues to build as they get better each game. They have a well-balanced attack which makes the team successful.

“These wins certainly help with our momentum,” Rhiel said. “We try not to think about who we are playing. We do not want to underestimate anyone. We view our competition the same no matter who we are playing.”
