Special thanks to all those who made it happen especially our players and staff for the hard work and dedication that made this possible." head coach Tom Walter said. "Any team can put together a great year and compete in the NCAA Tournament. However, it takes a great program to host an NCAA Regional and compete in the NCAA Tournament‎ in back to back years.
