Quotes:
UNBC’s Madison Landry

On earning a playoff victory over the Trinity Western Spartans…
“We are so excited. We have received so much support over social media and in person when we came back, so we are really thankful. Everyone is super excited to make history for the program, so it’s been really good.”


On the matchup with the Dinos…
“We are going to have to come out with good energy and focus, just like we did against Trinity.  We all played together, played as a team, and played with energy the whole time, which will be key against Calgary. They’re an extremely good team with a great record. They have a super deep bench, so we will have to keep on top of it the whole time, keep our energy up, and focus on our defense.”

On playing the series in Calgary…
“Playing here, it doesn’t take as much mental preparation. We come out and the crowd gives us so much energy, with all that community support. On the road, we really have to make out own energy and focus, and come out mentally tough.”
