“My team has worked very hard to earn the No. 1 seed for the conference tournament and I’m very proud of each of them for their dedication and effort to our program,” Daniel said. “I’m very fortunate to have a team with such great character and work ethic! We know we have a challenge ahead of us for the conference tournament, but I expect this group to battle like they have all season long. I’m especially proud of the sophomores for leading this team by example and being a positive role model for our freshmen, this has created an amazing team to coach because collectively we have great chemistry and genuinely love each other.”
