“Our whole thing that we’ve been saying this whole weekend has just been heart and execution. We’ve wanted to be able to get done what we needed to do, have fun, and put your whole heart into it,” said McKenna Smith, Tournament Most Valuable Player.

“It’s crazy to believe that we’re doing it again. We’ve proved everyone wrong because no one thought we could do it. We definitely had some setbacks this year, but showing up and proving that is huge. We’re coming back, and we’re coming hot. We lost our regionals last year, and we want to win. We want to prove to everyone that we can win, not just in our conference, but outside of our conference. I think we’re going to be able to prove that to people next weekend,” said Teagan Blackie, All-Tournament Team.

The Eagles will face Amherst on Friday at 4:30 p.m. to begin double-elimination regional play. Husson and Amherst are joined by Rochester (N.Y.) and Virginia Wesleyan in the region.
