Marsha’s Minute

“I saw several things in our match with Kentucky that I really liked,” said head coach Marsha Beasley.  Personal bests are always significant. Abby and Emily both had an 1170-plus aggregate score for the two events. Harley was very close to that level as well.  Almost everyone had pieces of their performance that looked very nice.

“We are working on performing well on every shot and I do think that is paying off. I'm looking forward to our match this coming weekend.”
