Hard Work Beats Talent When Talent Doesn't Work Hard

2014 Team Goals 

To encourage a positive attitude, controlled aggression, and strong work ethic at all softball activities. To understand that each individual is responsible to be a self motivator and realize that they will only achieve higher goals through individual workouts as well as team practices.
