Head coach Steve Rodriguez
On facing older teams
“I was actually looking at it this morning. We have 18 year-olds playing against 24 year-olds. They’re older, they’re more physical, they’re seasoned. They’ve been through this. They have older guys. in their lineup. That’s what’s different. The maturity part of that is a really big deal because you’re continuing to learn and get better. When you’re facing lineups like that, you need to make sure that your pitching is on point. You guys know that we have a lot of injuries and illnesses that we’re dealing with. The guys that we have going out there just need to continue to get better and give our offense a chance to get going. “

Sophomore OF Jacob Schoenvogel
On the energy in the locker room…
“Everyone has trust in everyone. We all want the guy to our left and to our right to succeed just as much as we want ourselves to succeed, sometimes it’s even more. Yeah, we’ve been through a rough patch or two, but we’re all pushing for one another to win. There’s been times when it hasn’t gone our way and it’s what it is. We’re still pushing for one another to succeed. “
