Forty-Five Student-Athletes To Graduate Sunday

Congratulations to all of our Tigers graduates.

"We feel that sky is the limit for Krista. She is tremendous athlete that can come in and give us something special at the outside forward position. Not only does she possess a lot of speed but she is composed around the goal. Krista is going to score a lot of goals for us over the next four years."
