“It’s awesome how we brought together a group of people who didn’t really know each other at all because diving is not a very popular sport. We all come together to do this niche sport that (we) like. It’s really enjoyable and really fosters a nice sense of community and team how to be a leader.”

My teammates have supported and inspired me to play at the next level (and) have allowed me to grow as a more confdent player. Even though it was a new team every year, I still could feel how well we all played together and how much we all cared about each other beyond (softball).”
