"I am thankful that this team has helped us make progress and take our program forward," said Michael McBride, Blinn head coach. "They increased the amount of wins this year, we set a program-best record, and took a couple of really good teams into overtime, so I am really proud. The sophomores were the pioneers of the program and it is nice that they are leaving here in a better place than last year, so they should be happy knowing that they helped improve our program."

I am really going to miss being on this field and with my teammates."
