"I was very pleased with the efforts of our girls' team," California Coach Rick Edwards said. "In the past few weeks they have made great strides. It's two-fold; first, we are improving in our performances across the board, and secondly we have Sydney Deeken back, who scores a lot of points for us. Our boys performed well also. We're getting some kids back from injuries and we've made a few additions to events which are helping us cut times."
