Announcement from Head Coach Missy Farr-Kaye
"As some close to me are aware, I am undergoing treatment for colon cancer after being diagnosed in November. My doctors are optimistic as we caught it early and treatments have begun, and we are confident being cancer free will happen. Chemotherapy has started and the plan is to coach this spring and be with our team as much as I can. Our focus will be on the incredible spring we want to have after not playing this past fall and having last spring taken away. We are ready to make a run at the championship in May at Grayhawk with many Sun Devils supporting us to our ninth NCAA title. There is room for more trophies on the shelf, and I look forward to being a big part of making that happen!"
