“We are a really young team; we have no seniors. I’m just excited to see what they can accomplish with their hard work ethic,” Bordewick said.

Bachelor agrees and said that she is confident that the team will have other individuals become leaders on the team.

“We have players that can step up and fill the void,” Bachelor said.

The team has been practicing for three weeks, increasing their team chemistry and trying to foster a positive work ethic.
