POSTGAME WITH COACH SEIFFERT
"I'm so proud of the growth and fight our women's team has displayed throughout the year. We competed well and matured while running a gauntlet that included six Top 25 ranked teams, and among them, the #1, #2, and #3 teams in the nation. I couldn't be more honored and blessed to coach such a wonderful group of young women who are always pursuing excellence in everything that they do. We have been very blessed by the seniors and leadership on this team and we, as coaches, could not be more proud of them."
