The Lady Outlaws coaching staff was proud of their girls.

Coach Julia Boris said, “We played as a complete team today with beautiful shot placement and defensive shut-outs. I am very proud of my newer players who continually get better and better. I love any opportunity we get to move players around and learn together.”

Assistant Coach Olivia Hougham said, “I’m so proud of the way our team played today, especially with back-to-back games. It was great to see the more-experienced and less-experienced girls play with a sense of cohesiveness and a hunger to win. This makes me excited to see them bring the same energy for the second half of our season.”

Heather Cramer, the team’s manager stated, “It was great to see the coaching staff lead this team to wins. Coach Julia and Coach Olivia bring infectious energy and persistent positivity, infusing the girls and heightening their level of play. Even with a small roster, this team is competitive and a force to be reckoned with.”
