“To win a Division III championship, you need to be peaking at the right time.  You need to have players that have maintained an unbelievable commitment to their goals, want to continue to go out with the desire and focus to compete at even a higher level of intensity, undertake pressure that was not required of them during the regular season.  It takes kids that truly believe in themselves personally as well as their teammates.  A confidence level only players and coaches who have walked this tournament walk can actually understand.  They truly take the journey as one.”
