"I, along with our entire staff, are just so happy for our players to have this opportunity to get out and compete in the sport they have so much passion for. And to do it at home, in front of family, made it even better. This is as competitive and coachable a group as I've ever had at UofA and we're taking things one day at a time, with an attitude of gratitude. We look forward to getting back at it next week."
