 "This was an outstanding weekend for us winning all 4 flights. We played really well all weekend and the results show a big improvement for us. It was good to compete with some of the teams we will be seeing in the spring and with Boise State at their turf who is now a conference rival. This tournament sets the tone for us in keeping with our mission this year, to make victory the pattern, to make success the norm."
