THEY SAID IT
Head Coach Paul Brueske
– On Rademeyer’s performance: “Kyle [Rademeyer] just barely missed the first-team All-American honors. The conditions weren’t ideal as it was raining, but he overcame adversity and performed like a true athlete. To be able to perform in such a way as a freshman makes us proud, and we are going to see a lot more from him in the future.”
