The Cougars will compete in the San Diego State Invitational this weekend.

It will be the Cougars first full-squad competition, after sending just freshmen and sophomores to their first competition, the Islanders Open, in Corpus Christi.

“We’re going to try to work on our mental toughness a little more and be a little more disciplined,” head coach John Severance said.

“We’re playing a tough tournament with teams like Duke and San Diego State, all those teams are nationally-ranked.”

Severance anticipates that the tougher competition will be a good learning experience for the Cougars.

“I think we’re going to have the opportunity to play against nationally-ranked opponents,” he said. “Whether or not we take a couple wins away, it’ll be great.”

In the Cougars’ first competition, sophomores Celia Fraser and Dionne Sanders advanced to the semifinals.
