"I am very proud of the way our team performed all year.  It was a tough transition for them at the beginning, but once they got things under way they really worked hard to get to where they got throughout the season.  We are very excited about next season as we do not lose a single player, and we are excited about the players we are bringing in next year,"  said Head Coach Aimee Litka.
