Quote | Head Coach Craig Hendry
"This was a fantastic experience. Although we didn't progress, our young women, with their efforts against strong opponents, were a credit to their families and the school. I believe this trip elevates our program and the school profile. This group has raised the bar for Pomeroy soccer, and our goal is to raise it further."
