Head Coach Michael Salomon commented on the day's action: "I was really proud of the way the ladies focused today. We came out and gave a consistent effort to play to the best of our ability in each point. I was really pleased to see us come away with such a focused effort when in past years our tendency has been to lose that focus in certain instances...I would also like to give some well-deserved credit to Johnson C. Smith as this was the hardest competing and most disciplined team they've had play against us in recent years. We're very excited to see their progress as they improve and push us to get better each year as well."
Belmont Abbey will be back for more action on Friday, February 24, when it welcomes Anderson (SC).
