Can you tell us a little about your team’s goals for the upcoming season?
Our team is excited to join the MCLA and are honored to be a member of the SELC Division I; a conference loaded with established, well-run programs. That being said, we are not content simply being in the SELC; our goal is to win the SELC championship and make the national tournament.
What’s one thing you’re most excited about?
We open the season against Pittsburgh. That’s the game in front of us right now, so that’s the most important game of the season.
Who will be the toughest teams to play in your conference this year? Why?
Anyone who followed the SELC last year knows that you can’t take a night off. We know that we need to execute each and every game this season.
Are there any other MCLA programs that you would compare yours to?
