Coach Dreyer Quote:
"The Ladies played a hard fought battle today as we were tested at Lyon College. We worked all week on sharpening our formation and it was exciting to see it start to come together. We had fast-paced, precise pattern play that translated to the game which led to our goal. The girls are coming together and working hard for each other as we continue play with Hendrix Thursday. There is no doubt that we did get better today."
