Coach Jason Farr's comments at the conclusion of the weekend: "We got first place at the tournament. We played against all NAIA teams that have the opportunity to give athletic scholarships. Very pleasing weekend. Jamie McFadden got tournament MVP, and Megan Donnelly was voted to the all-tournament team.

"The girls played the best that they have played all season. They are really starting to listen to the coaching better and getting some easy points when they listen. They are also listening to each other well and have become a better bonded team. They are doing so well.

"The opposing coach for the championship game shook my hand after the match (Indiana University East) and said, 'You guys have a fantastic team.' And I said, 'Thank you. I agree.' I then complimented his team, of course."

The Angels will be at home Wednesday evening, when they take on Oakland City University.
