Third-year coach Chad Spencer said he’s excited for his young team to get back to action.

“We had some promising moments in the fall and I’m eager to see this team make more strides during the spring,” Spencer said.

The young Wolf Pack will see senior Louise Yi, junior Joyce Chong, sophomore Nikki Prichard and freshmen Caryn Khoo and Carly Simpson take part in the tournament.
