“The weekend at UBC Okanagan is always a long hard weekend of great volleyball, with two teams bringing out the best in each other. So I’m really proud of our team coming in and just taking care of our side of the court. Overall, it was just a great team effort. Really appreciated the girls coming off the sideline and just supporting the crew.”
“Proud of Dora Komlodi, she has done a wonderful job for us. Just in her distribution of the ball, her decision-making and just her being a leader both on and off the floor.”
