“It’s a tough season, we’re trying to work through what this whole season has brought upon us. The great thing is, these young ladies continue to come back every day for practices from matches and they’re not quitting. That really shows perseverance of what these young ladies are made of so we’ll get to practice tomorrow, we’re going to work on a few things and we’ll get back out here on Wednesday which it will be a major night for us Wednesday.”
“We’re going to get through the process of that, have a great evening, be able to honor Dave (Ernst) in a way that I think he would be appreciative of so there will be a lot of emotions on Wednesday but we’re going to rally ourselves up, we’re going to lean on each other and we’re going to get to where we need to be and keep fighting on each and every day,” Coach Tabler shared.

“The girls don’t quit, that’s the one thing I am super proud of,” Tabler stated. “These girls always work, they’re always moving forward, they’re always getting best effort so that is just a testament to what Dave would have expected from them and it’s a way for them to continue to honor Dave and what he taught them. They are a wonderful bunch of young ladies, I’m proud to be a part and we’ll keep moving forward, keep fighting forward.”
