Coaches Report
“Both men’s and woman’s teams have worked very hard over this last season and we have seen significant improvement in both individual and team play. The men come into the tournament as strong gold medal contenders. We have a lot of options with our players and are very excited about this weekend. On the woman’s side we bring a mixture of youth and experience as we have two junior players (fresh off of a gold medal at Junior Nationals two weeks ago) and three returning senior players. If we play our game we could achieve a top three position. The coaches and players would like to thank ASRAB and all the volunteers that have helped make this season very memorable and successful”.
