"We played several competitive teams and nothing is a given at the U18 level. Everyone plays to win, so this was a total team effort with every player making their role count. Even in moments where we found ourselves in a hole or out-of-system, the girls knew exactly what they needed to do and communicated that to one another. We've been working on being calm, bettering the ball, making smart decisions, and playing with a certain level of confidence. It was great to see all of these things come together." - Coach Rainbow
