I thought that maybe they would be good this year but they are playing great this past month. I thought the new players they recruited would take a year to acclimate. The returning and the new players have really impressed. Hope they can keep it up.
They actually have no returning players from last year as the last one left prior to the spring.
They’ve done well, though. Once coach starts recruiting, I think she’s going to have a lot of success.
Thanks I didn’t know that. I thought I remembered them landing a couple of good players. But then again I turned 59 the other day so I’m using that as my excuse for maybe getting confused. That’s my story and hoping I can remember this story tomorrow. Lol
