Starting at Santa Barbara, we’ve really begun to hit our stride and seem to be peaking at the perfect time.

We are making great decisions with the ball and finishing games with confidence” added Motluck. “I think we just have a different expectation for ourselves and have been feeling really in control of our own play. The girls are playing so well together and are defining themselves as this season draws to an end…really proud of that”.
