UC Irvine's Head Coach Dan Klatt
(On freshman Mary Brooks' semifinal performance)
"She's a special player, obviously to step up on this stage... She's a go-getter. She isn't afraid of anybody. She's not afraid of the moment to step in and make big plays when the team needs her to do that and fortunately she did that today, she really helped push us ahead."
(On senior GK Jillian Yocum)
"The way I always put it, when Jillian's playing, I always feel like we have a chance to win, no matter how sloppy it is or how we're playing, whether we're playing good or bad... I also feel as if she embraces these moments."
"She wants to prove herself in the level that she's able to play at. She wants you to shoot at her, she wants to block the ball in a big moment."
"The most important thing is coming out and playing our best brand of water polo.
We need to sharpen our skills up and be the best version of us."
