Quotable:

Wesleyan head soccer coach Paige Hightower remarked, "We have just now gotten all our players back and healthy and have improved with each of our last three games. This game meant so much to our seniors, and I'm thrilled that Mylee was able to step up and convert on the penalty kick for our goal."

"Everyone on our roster played brilliantly today. I'm so proud of this team for being able to keep their heads up and fight through this season with all the odds that were stacked against us. And to come back from so many injuries and finish as strong as we did shows that these girls have amazing grit and character."

"Our seniors have contributed so much to this program, and they will be missed. This win was for Alyssa [Whitford], Emily [Rodenroth], and Mylee [Connor Bowman]."
