"Unfortunately, some of our guys have been sick this week so we weren't quite at full strength. It's a rough time to come down with something, but these things happen and you have no choice but to put your best foot forward."
"We return everyone next year and the whole team is committed to taking the steps necessary to compete at the next level."
