Coach Butz-Stavin - "For the most part, I've been pleased with the first two weeks of preseason workouts. Collectively we need to mature a little bit better and make adjustments on the field to recognize situations and make better decisions . We need to do that a little bit quicker and I think day by day we're getting better, but we want the kids to think for themselves out on the field."

"When we are in the defensive mode, the kids thave to check off and find their marks really quick and defend the lines. We also have to use both the width and depth in all directions. There are a lot of little details and I just want to make sure that we are prepared for all different situations throughout the season."

"We have great depth with this team and I'm really happy with our freshmen group. They're athletic and field hockey-minded and they are going to push the sophomores from last year."

"We also have a wonderful coaching staff. Laree Beans (former assistant) is back on with us and it's great to have her back. Kristin's main focus is the goalies and Allison is our JV coach. We have coaches with field hockey backgrounds and knowledge and they're a great asset to the team."
