Quotable “It’s going to be a fun year because we’re not going to let them too low or too high. It’s going to be a daily challenge. We’re looking at ‘Can we them progressing and be who want to be in January?’ That’s kinda where we are now. And where we are now compared to where we were in June, we’re miles down the road.”
Lady Mounties coach Preston Early
