Q&A with Head Coach Mike Andrew

On what Spring Training does for the team...

"It is a team bonding event. We have five freshmen that have never played with us before in the Spring. It will allow each of them to get closer with one another and with our team."

On what Coach Andrew expects from his team...

"I believe our fielding and pitching will be great, our hope is that the hitting comes along by the end of the week."

On how much Assistant Coach Josh Wood has helped the program...

"He has done great with the girls. His energy and enthusiasm have been great and a breath of fresh air. While his ability to bring new ideas has helped a lot too."

On the number one thing Coach Andrew wants the team to get from this trip...

"I want our girls to play together, break down any barriers there may be between them, and I hope they all become a close-knit group."
