with a trip to nationals

The LCC ladies became a true epitome team with different stars and leaders showing up on different nights. I met with LCC coach Kevin Crawford (who the LDN believes is one of the best small-college coaches of any sport) in my office as he was shaking off the effects of jet lag.
