Fetterolf said that he was not nervous for Friday’s game because the team had been preparing and practicing so much.

“I was not surprised at the outcome of [Friday’s] game because we had practiced so much and were all really excited to defeat Richmond.”

“Chris got the rebound and with two seconds left which secured the win for us,” said Powell.
