Not just this team, but so many teams that have come before them. We were able to recruit because of the success from other teams. I want to make sure that every single Lady Vol knows that they were a big part of us getting to this place.

A couple of years ago, we almost succeeded. We almost hosted but didn’t get it. Then, we were there. earned the host and we capitalized on it. Now all of a sudden we have the opportunity to go to the Sweet 16 and move forward. I give a lot of credit and want to shout out to performance coach Ryan Metzger and our fitness coaches Yosef Presburger and Izzy Minkin.

Our team was able to do their best for Tennessee today, thanks to everything they have done throughout the year. Also a huge thank you to all of our facilities staff, event management and staff support. The work you have done to help this regional run smoothly and provide a great experience is a memory our student-athletes will remember and cherish.”
