Coach Susan Quill is optimistic with the girls’ team entering SPC strong as the No. 2 seed in the South. “This team has the most talent and depth the school has ever put together,” Quill said. To prepare for SPC, the Mavs varied their starting lineups and utilized attacking and defending as a unit. According to Quill, the biggest challenge of SPC will be fielding the full starting squad since there have been players missing for nearly every game. “This team is really fun and bonded together,” sophomore forward Kate Ainbinder said, “but we are also really strong competitors and are working hard heading into SPC.” Captains: Claire Crane ('18), Gabrielle Heal ('18), Grace Melcher ('18)
