NOTABLE QUOTABLE

"The kids responded great after Thursday's performance (a 3-1 loss at WVU Tech). I couldn't be more proud of how they competed and how they played more of a style that we've been stressing - and then dealing with a couple more injuries. This is a performance that I'm truly proud of, but expect more of." - IU East coach Shane Meridith
