“What a great way to start the spring season,” said head coach Kolby Ungeheuer. “Both teams being Reserve Champions gives us a boost of momentum going forward. I am proud of all of them. We plan on competing at a high level every week, working steadily towards getting these teams to the College National Finals this summer.”
