“Everyone seemed to be on the same page,” said Coach Jason Bryant. “We wanted the same thing and that was to win. Everyone played an exceptional part in this tournament championship. We are very, very young and to go to a NCAA Division II tournament and play against a Division I school and come out with the tournament championship with this young of a team should prove to be solid building grounds for the future.”
