"Aside from round one, we played fairly steady this week," said head coach Dustin White. "Just didn't really get anything going or take it deep. Our guys fought hard and we're proud of the way they competed. We learned a lot this spring and will be better for it next spring. We were able to play a full schedule this spring and the guys made a lot of sacrifices to make it happen. The long-term goal now is to be better in September and put ourselves in a position to have a chance to win in the fall."
