Thoughts From Head Coach Jeff Maren "I'm really proud of our composure and mental strength today. Navy is well-coached and strong mentally as well, so we had to match their strength. I thought we did that. We are slowly but surely building in the right direction and are looking forward to next week's challenge already!"
