You know, we want to go out and win games. I’m excited for the young ladies who haven’t been. It’s gunna be a great experience for them. I’m glad we’ve got five or six that have been. That they can lean on for advice. You know, for what to expect. what it’s going to be like, all those type things.”

The lady Jets will have to take on the 14 seed, Trinity Valley in the first round, Tuesday March 19th at 10 A.M.
