“Coming off of the win last week [provided] me with confidence in our team’s [performance]. We have a groove going and knowing that we [could] win again [made us] excited to go back,” Cortez said. “We are a solid team [that will] keep growing. The prior games have added to that learning process. It helps their confidence and mentally prepares you to keep winning.”
