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
"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.
