"Our match today vs Maryville was the culmanation of all the hard work our women have put in all year. They brought their A games and left it all out on the court.," said Wesleyan head coach Alex Kosicki. "Knowing how difficult a comeback would be, they pushed through, it was truly incredible to watch. From the first practice on the first day this year to now, their improvements have been nothing short of spectacular. I have consistently said how proud I am of this group and today showed why. This is a very special group that will continue to improve, on and off the court. I am beyond excited to continue this journey together for years to come as we look to make an impact in our new conference! Go Wolves!."
