Quote of the game:

"We had a great week this week! I'm glad that we could come out strong at home. After a 9 hour bus ride on Wednesday, it would be easy to coast through the week, but we showed that we are a determined team. Now that we have some momentum, I'm excited how we play against the upcoming teams and if we can carry our momentum."
- Brandon Merritt, Assistant Coach  

Up Next - The Hawks travel to American River College on Wednesday to take on the Beavers. On Friday, the Hawks will return home to take on Sacramento City College. Both games will begin at 6:30 pm.
