Miozzi Mentions: "We just have not been able to consistently put it together. We play some strong games with quality play and follow it up with matches where we just don't play well. The team is very capable of competing; we just need to be able to find it within ourselves to work hard for ourselves and our teammates. Char continues to lead with her upbeat attitude and enthusiasm – we really like that. Abigail Tuttle again stepped in and played well. She's learning the game and her efforts are beginning to pay off."
