“The team played well,” said head coach Sujay Lama. “They competed very well. It was an emotional day for us. Today was Megan’s last match and it was tough because she’s given so much to us this year. I’m taking a lot of pride out of this group. I’ve learned as much as I hope they’ve learned from us. This is a team I’ll always remember. They have definitely put their stamp in our program and where it’s going to go in years to come.”
