Omaha, December 20, 2008. Head Coach Russ Rose Opening Statement: “First I want to congratulate Stanford on the great season they had. Thank you to the city of Omaha for supporting the event. I don’t think it was the prettiest match to determine the national championship, but it was a match that was played very hard by both teams. I thought we hung in there defensively and gave ourselves opportunities for a chance for Megan to take big swings at the end. I thought it was a group effort in a lot of areas. It certainly wasn’t a match that had the same energy from the match a couple of nights ago. That one had the significance to get us here. Tonight’s has special significance, especially for the seniors.” More from gopsusports.com.
