“We just were not able to sustain our play tonight. The Ladies played hard against one of the top teams in the nation tonight. Not to make excuses, but we are a little undermanned with injures that hit us of late, but we are getting better and when you add those that are out we are going to be very good,” Coach Serol Stauffenberg concluded.
The team travelsl to Gilbert, AZ to take on Chandler-Gilbert Community College and then play the next three days vs. Arizona community colleges including Scottsdale Community College, South Mountain Community College and Mesa Community College.
