"Winning is never easy and winning on the road is even more difficult. This was a great weekend, as we were able to get two road wins, and more importantly, continue to take steps forward as a team. It has been really fun to watch our maturation as a team. We are learning how to be a good defensive team and even learning how to be a better offensive team. There are so many little things that go into finding success and we have started to make those things a habit. It's going to be fun over the next few weeks to watch us keep progressing." -Coach Nelson
