USC WOMEN OF TROY
Is a repeat possible? All that returns for coach Mick Haley and the defending national champions is the entire starting lineup from a year ago. It's the same squad the blanked its opponent 24 times last season en route to a 31-1 record.
ACCORDING TO COACH HALEY
'Winning the national championship was a major turning point for our program because it got us over the hump and proved that SC could win again. The tradition and pride in our program right now is just oozing and rightfully so. There seems to be a sense of real pride in these women and their accomplishments.
'We feel like we have a great team that will defend the title this season thanks to all of our returning seniors and their experience. If they meet the challenge this season , and if the seniors bring the juniors and sophomores along, then there is no reason why this team can't hang on to its success for a few years.'
