"I am so proud of this team and the hard work and focus they’ve put into becoming regular season champions,” says Quakers Head Coach, Kirsten Becker. “This has been one of, if not the most successful and consistent years in our program’s history, and it’s all due to our team’s commitment to training and preparation. They’ve shown their resilience no matter the circumstances and challenges we’ve faced throughout the last two years. They are truly a unit and support one another endlessly. Again, we are very proud of them and this accomplishment and are looking forward to competing at the conference championship this weekend!”
