NOTABLE QUOTABLE

"Since we had our loss last night (Sept. 9 against Earlham), we went back and reflected about it and told each other, 'It's a new day. We need to go after it. We're on a clean slate.' We did a really good job being more consistent. We tried to play at our level and not get caught up in what is going on on the other side of the net." - IU East's Bailey Gates
