The team’s five seniors helped lead the Saints to six tournament championships and put Ashford on the map with the program’s first appearance in the NAIA top-25 rankings.
“Our program, as well as myself, owe everything that happened this week to these five seniors,” Heiple said. “They have been committed all year, and they changed a program. It has been a great year. We rewrote the record books, and it’s going to take something special to top what they did. Our kids raised the bar this year, and it was a special thing to be a part of.”
