QUOTING COACH MENZEL
“Not the finish we were hoping for to end the fall season but I thought the team worked to give their best effort until the end. It was a unique couple days with the format and conditions but we will certainly add this to the many things we learned this fall and be better come spring. “
Iowa will open the spring season, facing Colorado between the dates of Jan. 27-30 in Seal Beach, Calif.
