"This team is special. I truly believe that when you care about your teammates and work for one another, the best comes out in everyone, and that is what we see here," said head coach Edgar Vazquez. "The boys are starting to get their pieces back to make us a strong team come the postseason, and the girls are just on a tear this early in the season. Look for the girls to turn some heads this spring. We as a staff are beyond excited for the outcome of this season!"
