Jenna Abell shared, “We did really well competing against the larger schools. We hadn’t really seen competition yet, and we did a great job of using it to our advantage. The weather was also really nice, which helped us.”

It was a dominant performance all-around by the Sharks. The team was back in action Wednesday, April 28, at home against Ithaca in a Tri-Valley Conference matchup.
