Quote from Coach Schreiber:
"Both of our teams took a step in the right direction. Our varsity team figured out how we have to play to win and our JV showed tremendous improvement from the first day. Unfortunately each team struggled putting together a consistent level of play in the Finals. We are part of a great conference that leaves no room for error."
