The Saints finished the tournament 2-2 overall, dropping games to Southwestern Assemblies of God University and Westcliff, ultimately winning against Friends 3-1 and Loyola 3-1.  With the newcomers joining, returning players expect an exciting season. They do their part to welcome them to the team. “Dailyn and Becca [vollyball players], they took me in under their wing, way before preseason in open gym,” freshman ,Mia Francis said. “We hung out a couple of times; it was an instant click.”  Conference preseasons are a wonderful way for the Saints to become more confident together as a team. “Not only is the work being put on the court, but our coach instills a standard for us to follow on quotes to live by as a team,” sophomore, Dailyn Mann said.  The team has built a strong bond and begins with everyone being friends.  “I think the tightness of this group is what is making us what we are,” freshman, Karla Candia said.
