Head coach Michael Meek is pleased with his team’s preparation and hopes they will continue to improve every day.
The last time the Pilots competed in the women’s tournament was in 1997.
The team is excited to have the opportunity to participate this year and is grateful for the support of their fans and season ticket holders.
The Pilots are determined to play their best and enjoy the experience of participating in the tournament.
